oil pastel on paper
9" x 9"
A fun portrait based on photos I took in Vermont this summer. This cow was bossing the other ladies around at the feed trough. She earned her title, "Bossy Bessie." I may regret disclosing that my parents used to call me "Messy Bessie" as a child! (Hence the Bessie in this title!).
I continue to experiment with the Sabretooth sanded paper. This was on a scrap piece of the pink color. I am finding that I prefer the smoother Colourfix paper for most projects. UPS just delivered a sampler set of UART sanded papers, so I am off to check them out. Next I have some larger commissions to finish up.
Stay tuned and thanks for reading!
