Stages - Texas Longhorn

Below you we see the various stages of my painting as I go through the process of creating this piece. I also will provide comments and my thoughts during a particular stage. If you are a fellow artist, and you have any questions and/or comments, please do not hesitate to drop me a line.

Texas Longhorn
14 x 24 Oil on Panel

This painting came from several reference photos of mine that I took somewhere in Texas while on one of my adventures.

Stage 1

After completing the underpainting, I began working on the sky. Will now work on the clouds to add details and highlights. The next stage will be to work on the distant background and trees.

Stage 2

Completed the sky, and distant trees and mountains. Started working on the grass, will now begin to add detail blades of grass and clumps. I might add a few wildflowers to the foreground.
