Cattle painting

I am getting there on my cattle painting. Man, that’s a lot of fur! It’s funny, I sometimes don’t notice details until I start painting. The fur! It has been challenging. I am working from one of my photos. I’ll just say, I always work from my own photos. I have that one last cow head to do then some other small details. I love painting animal eyes. Just to let you know, I painted the cow’s eye on the left, 4 times before I got it just perfect. There are so many colors in eyes. I enjoy painting them to look very realistic. When I paint an animal it is so tempting to paint the eye right away. I kinda make myself wait until I get further into the painting. Like a reward for working so hard. I know, a little weird. Enjoy and stay tuned. P.S. This painting is 30×60, oil.
