The Cows are in the Meadow
Simple composition with barn and cows. I have never done cows before and treated them like painting birch trees. I think that it was successful. The power pole pushes the scene into the background and since the focus is on the cows and barn, it is purposely out of focus. It was done wet into wet. I am new to doing a lot of clouds. When I observe them they seem to have flattened bottoms. We do not see a lot of clouds where I live. I tried to give the flattened bottoms some color with reds, yellows and blues.
