Outlook Oil Demonstration
I was drawn to the yellow field in Peacham which overlooked the hills in the distance. But, I thought for a painting, it would be nice to add some cows both for hits of color and to highlight the overlook. Having had training in illustration, I often combine more than one image to create my painting. The other interesting thing that happened is that because I photographed stages of the painting, I realized at one point that I had gone too far with detail because the image before was better. So, I wiped away at much of the foreground in order to once again bring focus to my hero...the cows.
