|"Grass Lunch" painting of cows work in progress, oil, 18"h x 24"w, copyright Jill Banks 2013|
For a long time today, I kept lowering the cow's belly -- making her stockier and stockier -- in small increments. Cow anatomy is new to me -- but it looks a-ok at the moment.
Tonight I went to Open Life at the McLean Community Center (McLean, VA). The model was someone I painted (and drew) ten years ago at the Art League. This week's session did produce a portrait that's pretty striking. You'll see it soon.
Happy Mother's Day to All the Moms Out There!
