"The Three Cows" Oil Painting

"The Three Cows"
8x10" Oil

Summer is just around the corner here.  So, I felt like painting something summery.  Saw these cows last June when visiting the peony farm up north of Penn Yan, here in the Finger Lakes.

I painted it over the top of an old painting, so there is a lot of texture in the surface.  And I wanted to try this unusual composition (trees in the middle) and a high key (i.e., very light) color palette to see if it would work, especially with a black cow smack dab in the middle.

The three cows are very different from each other but clearly spend time a lot of time together.  Doing whatever cows do.
