Why am I doing this? Because I know from experience that it will get easier and I will get better at painting 100% from life by the time the 60/60 Challenge ends on May 6th. Yep, that's 60 paintings, on location, in 60 days. Fortunately, I'm in New Zealand for all of that time. Unfortunately, this is the wettest/coolest summer in many years so finding a dry place to paint is a real challenge. If I were in my own house, I could paint interiors on a rainy day, but I'm in a carpeted rental house and I'm guessing the owners would not like pthalo green on the carpeting.
I found a herd of young cows and bulls begging to be painted. I screeched to a halt - set up my Sol-tek easel and wouldn't you know it, the cows/bulls made a beeline for the fence to see what I was up to. So now I had big cow faces two feet away instead of the pastoral motif I had envisioned.
So this is today's contribution to my challenge. It's an 8" x 8" oil on board....slightly unfinished as it started to rain. I'm a glutton for punishment.
