Tired Cow( EB 121) is an 8x10 oil painting on masonite.
Painting outside with a plein air artists group, I happened upon this hefty, old and tired cow. He didn't budge for a long time; he was content watching me.
I used thick and painterly strokes of oil on large and small brushes for this depiction. I was interested in the beautiful gray colors behind the sunlit orange-brown cow, which was the center of interest.
