20.5x20 watercolor on Yupo, a reworked piece today from the image below which I flipped upside down then drew in pencil the cow's outline. Since the red, white, and blue are Texas flag colors I decided to play up the dark indigo or navy blue and have larger amounts of white with touches of red. The callas below were cut about 5-6 inches and that image was featured on yesterday's blog as a horizontal almost abstract design. The cow image was inspired by one seen in a gift catalog that was mass produced, so stay tuned for more. Yupo is medium weight. I thought the white calla curl at upper left seen below would make a nice nostril. Many of the pigments were opaques to get them to adhere to the support; in other areas I simply lifted all the paint. Pattern areas were made using a plastic strawberry basket. Size of callas below was 26x20.
