'Morning blues' oil painting



Pin It
A few weeks ago I made a painting of a cow in the mist, and said that I wasn't sure if it was finished or not.  When I looked at it again with a fresh eye, I felt it needed some more action so I added 2 friends.

Much better Erik, the company of the two cows makes the composition better.

good choice Eric. It really made the painting.
Thanks for the kind comment on my blog.

Hi Gary, thanks, good to hear you like it.

hi again Eric. In answer rto your question on my art blog. Yep. That is a Soltek. Living close to the Wilcox's I have been conned by them to try out several produts. Some artists don't like the Soltek but I do. Ran into an artist the other day who didn't till she saw how I use mine backwards from what she was doing and now kind of likes it.

Thanks Gary, didn't know about a Soltek until I saw it in one of Jim's DVD's. It looks very handy.

Hi Erik!.. thanks for your words in my blog.. you have an amazing artwork in traditional media here.. being honest, I don't paint a lot in traditional media, but I will have to give myself off one of these days for doing it.. cheers!

PS: Sorry for being so late to answer your comment..

Hi Bogart, thanks for visiting.
I do a lot of 3d work and Photoshop work in my day-job so the traditional work is a welcome change. You should definitely give it a try.
