Working on this piece based on the sketch at Pierce and a photo for the last couple weeks. I like the blue sky reflecting off the cow hides and the bright green grass.
Schlepped out to Pierce College to do some plein air painting so as to submit for the Rural Remnants of the San Fernando Valley show at Galleria Gitana. I set up and had been painting for about 20 minutes when a tractor pulled up and parked literally in front of the view I was painting. It ran out of gas at that precise moment. Luckily, I’m flexible, and just moved my easel and started over.
Those are cows in the shade of the trees.
