Hereford Cow oil painting.

What a cute little heifer! My grandparents raised herefords so I think of them when I see hereford cattle. This little cow looked so bright eyed and interested in something. Had to paint her! I'm always saying that about animals, I just had to paint this one....

I need to add her tail, broaden her shoulder on the left side and widen her nose. Then she's finished. I used iron red oxide, a small bit of naples yellow and dioxadine purple to create her. Plus a little titanium white.
I'm happy to say, this little cow is Sold.
