is that my cow? why no! it's a color rendering!

wish i got more done in this painting! i decided to try and mix atmospheric perspective with the intuitive color palatte, but it ended up taking a lot more time, so i missed out on some of the typography. i think my black and white was a more successful painting, but personally, i like this one better. the colors are just saturated enough to keep me from getting too bored. i'm not sure i'll go back and rework this painting, i need to take a break from painting from photos. time to paint some trees!!!
the atmosphere needs some help, so any suggestions on how i could improve on that would be great! i want to be able to apply atmosphere to my forest paintings next semester!
many thanks to all those in the art building who critiqued this painting. it really helped!


  1. what a splendid cow hillary!!!! I love it!! hahah. really really awesome, I just noticed the unicorn on your bottle lol. :D

  2. good job Hillary! Dont worry about atmosphere painting. Just go paint outside or go to forest and draw from live as much as you can!
