Cows at Coon Point (ala Roos Schuring)

I went out painting with a friend last week and came across a small herd of cows lounging in the sun. They were the same type of cows that I often see in Roos Schuring’s paintings. She’s a fantastic painter in Holland. I wrote about her back in Aug 2012.

Check out her site here.

So I decided to see if I could paint these cows ala Roos Schuring.

    I guess this is called “evocative” of cows … and of the pastoral mood. Lovely! P.S. I LOVE GETTING A PAINTING IN MY INBOX. Thank you so much for doing the work of making a blog.

    This is really lovely – The green/yellow with the black and white of the cows is very striking and fresh.

    Thanks, everyone. I’m glad the painting came off as mine. Roos liked it as well.

    I agree with all others. This is definately a major breakthrough in the artistic depiction of cows :).
    Looks great, awesome color treatment.
