Another Cow Painting: Beefmaster Bull Calf

I find many of my painting references when I visit the farm. This Beefmaster (a breed) bull calf stopped inquisitively and stared straight at my camera lens to make a great reference photo. On this painting I used a limited palette of terra rose, cadmium red, cadmium yellow, ultramarine blue, and a little white for accents.

This is one of my daily paintings and one of the farm series.
