Painting Cows in Summer


The Cows are enjoying the lazy days in Summer. Partly in shade, in light. I asked the farmer how old cows get, and by coincidence found out that these cows I paint here are the very same cows I painted 6 years ago. We also have our favorite friends among this crowd. I love Cows.

As you get more involved with these creatures, you"ll notice some things. Today there are mostly young ones in the Dutch fields. This also means the older ones have been terminated. (Far too young) All for milk"s sake. I think there are a lot of things wrong with this and other countries, one of these things is the milk industry. Some farmers do it right, like the one I spoke to. A lot of farmers do it awfully wrong. A) Seperating youngs from mothers too soon B) Terminating too soon C) The mega-farms never let Cows go outside anymore ETC ETC., Yes, a crying shame is it not? You"d be better off buying the ecological products, milk, cheese, etc. Those ecological farmers most often take better care of the animals, have more respect for the environment and animals in general. It"s an important choice you can make in purchasing, by choosing you also take a stand. Any caring human being should make this choice consciously.

Painting Cows on a Hot Summer"s Day


I love the effects of warmth and sun. Purple glow in the sky. The color of the cows in shade.

Beauty on a Rainy Day - Cows and Mud Track

This is a feed from roosschuring.com - Blogpost:

Beauty on a Rainy Day - Cows and Mud


I don"t say painting in rain is fun or easy. But it can deliver. And that"s what it"s all about.

arrowwwI used to wait for a "good day to paint" but most of the times this will mean you"ll miss out on a lot. So don"t let "fear of getting wet" hold you from painting: the umbrella will only keep the painting dry. The palette you"ll just have to shake once in a while to get rid of the water. Oh yes: that"s why oils are better to work with outdoors: you can"t do this with acrylics.
(And did you ever wonder what happens to the plastic molecules you throw down the drain after painting with acrylics? Indeed! I think acrylics are bad for the natural environment, because who says they can get these plastic molecules out of the water again? ->Perhaps they can"t. Think about it.)

Every day is different, so the sun came out again. And everything changes. The cows rest, the colors are bright.

Cows near Dyke and Windmills in Evening Light

Painting Cows near Dyke in Evening Light.


Most of the times I haven"t got the energy to go out and paint in the evening. So this one was the exception! The light was too bright to ignore.

arrowww

I always carry my gear in the car, so that"s a lower threshold right there. = TIP for you :)

Create a (duplicate) painting set and put it in the trunk. Don"t take it out after you"ve painted (only clean brushes) & use it again and again. You don"t need to gather your stuff every time you want to go out painting. Saves you a lot of hassle.

Painting Cows in Shade

Painting Cows in Shade


As a painter I"m very much aware of "the fleetness of the moment". A moment in Summer, a moment in the day, a moment of bright colors. Like many more painters are. Especially the plein air painters perhaps, they can feel it fleeting by. Anyway, sometimes the beauty is so glorious, this fact is then so clear. Luckily we can paint it. Savor the moment in paint.
