Gotta have Goats!

A Purple Goat
A Purple Goat

This is one of my recent painting.  I love goats because they are so personable, funny and lively.  Also – their eyes are so neat-almost  on the side of their head!    This painting won 2nd place at the Gillespie Co. Fair in Adult watercolor.  Prints for sale at click here.

Now, Black and White!

This is my latest painting.  The cow is a “black baldie”, it is a typical Angus Hereford cross bred.  The black comes from the Black Angus and the white face from the Hereford.  I took this photo in the winter, so the hair is nice and fluffy around the ears and top knot.  There was a whole group of cattle that had just been put in this pasture and it was a beautiful sunny day.  see all my watercolor artwork for sale

And then there were ANGUS!!

I love the challenge of painting black Angus – when you first look at them – all you see is black – but look closer – get a bit of sunlight on them – and their rainbow of color explodes.  Click here to go to my shop to see all my work and make purchases

Angora Goats

I took some lovely photos at a local ranch owned by Linda Treibs and her husband.  She graciously drove me around and help me get some great photos of all her livestock.  These are some of the beautiful Angoras.

 

My latest black cows

DEUCE with sigAs you drive around the Texas Hill Country, you will see mostly Angus and Angus cross cattle.  I tried to do some black cows many months ago – and they are quite  a challenge to do – especially when you do them as close-ups, as I do.  You can’t just paint a cow all black – that really isn’t the true color and doesn’t show definition, etc.  So – I have struggled a bit with the black cows.  But here are two of my latest – I incorporated purple, turquoise, Hope you like them.bennett-purplecow23 small pixels
