Today’s post will be a short one. I wanted to prepare those who would like to paint along with me. I’m going to paint a small Longhorn steer vignette. My finished painting image will be 12 x 9. I will begin this painting completely drawn and move along faster than our first painting of Walter.
I am posting my photo and palette that I will be using to work from. I picked this photo because it will require a somewhat limited palette, and should make things a little less complicated.
Here are the colors we will be using:
My brushes will be Silver Black Velvet Rounds, sizes #4, #6 and #8.
Here’s the photo I will be working from. I made it a bit smaller, so it will fit on an 8.5 x 11 sheet.
I know this was a short post, but I wanted to give the paint-along crowd a few days to nail down a good drawing.
Tomorrow, enjoy the weekend cowboy post of “Arizona Blue”. And we will get together again on Monday and begin our painting.
