Two cows walking, 4x6" watercolor
Guinea hens on the run, 4x6" watercolor
Someday, I’m going to wake up and say, “Today, I will create a masterpiece.” Today is not that day. Most days are spent practicing my craft. Painting barn animals on the loose is practicing my craft. It’s important to look at shapes, particularly when your subject matter is moving. These guinea hens, for instance, are nothing but round shapes with tiny little heads and sticks for legs. How many times do I hear, “I can’t even draw a stick figure”? A stick figure is the essence of a figure, so in my most humble opinion, there’s much to be said for drawing stick figures.
