Here is a glimpse of the amish watercolor I am working on right now….with several other projects, of course. Sometimes I am so excited with all the new ideas I have in my head, I don’t know which one to start off with. Now I am in the middle of too many! I can’t seem to win.
Anyway, the reason this painting has held me up some, is because I can’t seem to find the perfect reference of a baby calf’s behind! Sounds funny, doesn’t it. I have tons of books and so many pic s on the internet, but I really wanted a picture of a baby calf walking away with part of his head to the side (so you could see it was a calf)…but do you think I could find one! This is driving me crazy! I’m sure I could improvise, even a little bit, but I can’t seem to find what I am looking for. So I just started to paint the girl…at least it’s a start. I want it to look like the little amish girl is walking alongside this calf in a field. Just a quiet, serene picture. Hopefully finished soon… and if I can’t find a calf…who knows what I can substitute. Let’s just say…I want to find a calf! I will post as soon as I have more, or am finished. Take care and talk soon
