Sketch with little red barn and cows in ink in Moleskine.

3″ x 3″ Watercolor on Landscape Moleskine Sketchbook
A foggy morning makes for a perfect opportunity to watercolor. This scene was painted after I pulled onto this dirt road from the highway. To my surprise some cows were plodding there way onto and down this dirt road. So I scrambled around for my sketchbook and quickly sketched the cows in before they left. After that I painted it. This is what I got. Unfortunately I spilled my hot chocolate in haste of sketching the cows. I’m not sure why the camera doesn’t get the colors right. The trees supposed to be green but not in this photo.
Well, definitely not a masterpiece–maybe not even acceptable for this site! But I wanted to be able to scribe some cow icons for a session that I was doing graphic recording for. So the drawings on the left helped me understand “cowness” enough to draw the little cartoons on the right. Not great art by any means but was fun. Faber Castell PITT pens and Rembrandt Lyra Polycolor pencils.
