Amish Watercolor Finally Started (whew!)

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

    Cheryl, Love your work. I noticed you sell some prints of your art. Do you sell any Christmas prints?
    Thank you,

    • Yes I do, there are some on my Etsy site now…at I will have to check if they are all up there, and see if there are any in my expired listings. I love painting all types of Santas!

    • Also, check my post here of flag design samples…. like 3 posts back,there are some of my Christmas paintings and illustrations there…almost forgot!

    Do you have any farms nearby? Its Spring and babies like to be born now. With luck you may find a newborn calf to use as model. That would be so cute
