Keep Running Cattle...

Another series of cattle. This time I'm going to challenge myself with a herd of cattle in action, stampede. The photo was taken back in June on my way to Columbia Gorge. I didn't intend to frighten them but while I was taking some photos they suddenly started running away. I enlarged the original and cut it into three pieces horizontally. This is the left piece. Since it was clouded, the photo was not so clear. Blurred after it was magnified. They were black. So, it would be challenging for me to paint them from the photo. I need to forget about the detail but focus on subtle color and value changes and exaggerate them in this series of painting. The size is 10"x25".
