Curious Calves


Curious Calves watercolour 9×12
This was an exercise playing with value and tone. The summer light brought out the subtle colours in the calves coats.  Thankful they were curious enough to stay for several photos. More likely they came running in the hopes of scoring some sweet clover.

Tried to stay loose though I couldn’t resist some detail. Let me know what you think.

    1. Thanks! Originally I had them free floating, which I liked, but then tried to anchor them. I considered detailing the field even more but this is sold now so I can’t change it. I think you are right though. I’ll try the next one that way. 😊
