Young Cows in Morning Light – sold

Just after sunrise.

I had started this painting >but because of a soccer match, I had to end it far from finished. Now I finally can use these emoticons 🤯 😬 , haha but that’s surely how it felt.

Here’s where I put the full painting in the freezer to be able to finish the painting the next morning with none of the areas dry!

Because working how I do, I need to have the paint stay wet until it’s finished, ‘alla prima’.

It worked wonders. Glad there WAS a sun the next morning and glad the young naughty cows were there as well.

Fun fact: I knew once they were fed they wouldn’t be walking around anymore. That helped me hurry.

Yay for finishing. There’s nothing more bothering the mind as having a good start without an ending. Best is to finish in 1 day, and if you have to: try to finish the next day right after. A week wouldn’t benefit you. Test it out.

Day 2 – Day 1 gave me the composition, grassland, sun – here I just needed to catch the cows when passing by, standing in this morning light!


Naughty young cows: never stay, walk fast and seem to avoid painters :) This is looking to my left.


Warm colors for the morning!
