While doing our fall riding and sorting, shipping calves and preg testing and vaccinating, I took lots of pictures. This picture was early in the morning on the day we shipped calves. The sun had been up for just 20 minutes or so. It was crisp and sunny. The perfect combo for a painting. I liked how the sun it the sides of the cows and my husbands hat and jacket. With the fall colors in the back, i felt i had a good basis for a painting. This one is 11×15 Fabranio Artistico 140# rough paper. watercolor.
