I painted a cow!
A friend told me if I painted a cow she may buy the painting. Of course this inspired me to try and paint a cow.... so I found a cow picture on Paint My Photo: http://paintmyphoto.ning.com/photo/img-9690-1024x683http://paintmyphoto.ning.com/photo/img-9690-1024x683
I drew ot the picture, masked over the cows and started painting the background. After that was finished I painted the front cow. This was challenging. I know I needed to add depth to the black, so painted layers of black, blue, red,brown. I removed some layers too so there would be shadows and highlights.
