Herefords at the Grey Barn

I did something like this is a smaller format 12" x 6". This is not much larger, but I believe in baby steps. I switched the cattle to Herefords because I liked the contrast of the reddish fur against the blue. I did add one mixed breed, not sure if that was a good idea. This is oil and I can wipe that off and make another Hereford.

  1. I like the contrast. The dark frames the right cow's head and keeps it from disappearing into the snow, though another Hereford could do that too, particularly if it was dark reddish, as if in shadow.

  2. Yes, and there are darker colored Herefords. Knowing when it's finished, sometimes with me it is when it sells.
