The New Breed Painting
Original mixed medium painting on cradled wood panel. This piece has an underpainting using acrylic paint on primed wood panel and uses oil paint for the top layers.
The subject is a cow grazing on a fence line on a misty morning on a rural road in VT. This beauty was among a herd of Black Angus's. Beef Cattle are appearing in larger numbers in the local pastures as smaller Dairy Farmers struggle to diversify in efforts keep their family run farms viable.
