Day 2: The "30 Paintings in 30 Days" Challenge

In this painting, I tried to capture the Charolais Bull's serene expression, along with the tranquility of the field from which he stands watch over his herd of cows and calfs at the Blue Moon Ranch in Central California.  The late afternoon or early evening is my favorite time of day to paint, as I love the long shadows and soft light.  Both my husband and father-in-law said this is their favorite painting yet, and I think that has something to do with the fact that it is their bull!
