Landscape with Cattle

Landscape with Cattle - student project

Hi Cally,

Thank you so much for sharing this class. 

Having seen the way you simplified the shapes of the cattle I really enjoyed sketching the cows from the photos you provided - I'm especially surprised by their skinny legs with round knees and the "bump" on top of their head.

I've included a copy of both the practise sheet and then my two pictures.

The first turned out too dark and non-transparent I think. Plus I couldn't get hold of the right colours for the mountains.

In the second picture I like the colours better. The cows stand out more, but then I got too fussy with the foreground adding more and more washes.

But great practise and now I won't be intimidated by drawing cows in the future.

Best wishes
