Well, I am obsessed with a new artist I found. Irina Rumyantseva, her work is just incredible. I have been planning a painting with a cow for my step-daughters graduation gift. In May she graduates from Michigan State University's Vet School as a Specialist in Cows. There is a more technical term but I don't know what it is. So I have been collecting some photos and have a photo date planned at a local farm. I need some up close and personal cow shots. While this has been my plan for the last year, of course, now I am down to the wire. Then I discover Irina! She paints alot of cows. Hers are amazing and soooooooo captivating.
As practice this weekend I copied her cow for a sketch but then added traditional cow markings to it. It was great fun and a good ice-breaker to get me to move forward on this project.
She is having a drawing for one of her paintings....I keep sharing her on FB hoping my name is drawn from the hat!
Here is my sketch!
Thanks to Irina for her inspiration and all the artists' I follow!
life is short, make sure you LIVE it!
