Another 'Ah-ha' Moment

   This is not something you can get without attending a workshop like the last one. After somewhat satisfied with the shapes of cows, I boldly mixed the highlighted colors of the front cow. I originally thought they were quite off from the actual colors, but they weren't. I used a lots of cad orange and applied the mixture with bold short & straight brushstrokes, just like Ned's. This is what I wanted to do for quite some time! As the result, the cow is more lively and the painting is vibrating. I think another important point was these strokes/colors were applied in wet-in-wet fashion. This is another key point.
