Yes siree bob!
This here cow girl that I painted from a live (not stuffed or from a photo) model about a month ago, is finally completed (this time with the aid of a reference photo that I snapped at the time of the model session). When I was painting her, a father and his little daughter came up to observe. The daughter said, "Why are you painting a boy?" I told the little rug rat to buzz off! But she was correct. I painted the cow girl's chin to look like Jay Leno giving her a distinctly cow BOY look. I corrected that in my studio. Hope Dad's little precious is not turned off to artists and their art. You can see my start and midway efforts here. I paint the big picture first before I begin to refine. Always the "big picture first" is my mantra, cow boys and cow girls. Painted on un-stretched canvas taped on a wood board.
