Made a start to my Wee Moo Collection....


 
Had hoped to have this one finished today but life got in the way....it has an annoying habit of doing that sometime. For a while now I've been planning on doing a collection of wee moo paintings (as I have a whole stack of reference photos). My answer to Karin Jurick's wonderful mugshot series. First on the easel is this handsome Friesian bullock called Ivan. I don't suppose he actually has a name but he's Ivan to me.

Any chance of any hairy coos again please?

I'm sure there will be a few hairy ones :)

Love the reddish underpainting on this ... seems a good start! (Know what you mean about life getting in the way ... it's been weeks for me!) I love the idea of this series ... can hardly wait to see what's to come!

Karen the days just seem to be disappearing, already halfway through September. But at least we are coming to a colourful time of the year :)

Wow! Love this one! I love the Friesian cows.

Thanks Gail, this one is a big strapping bullock. This is the start of a collection of Wee Moos, all 6x6. Lots more Friesians too come plus other breeds and cross breeds....not too mention babies as well :)

You are right, the name Ivan suits him well - lovely start and I am looking forward to your wee herd as it grows!
