How to make a Watercolor Painting of a Cow


The Cow
The Cow, painting by Delilah Smith
About This Painting: This painting is a little larger then most of my watercolors.

 I painted it wet on wet in some areas to get a soft blend of hue. When I paint cows I always feel that the eyes are the important feature.

1. The eye is an orb shape and like a rain drop reflects light. You also have the cast shadow of the upper eye lid to think about.

 2 Always retain a highlight in the eye – it is what gives it life. Even if you can’t see one, include a highlight. Once you have your highlight, protect it. You could add some white paint later, but it will lack the luminosity of white paper.

3 An eye is an indication of character in an animal; all the emotions can be portrayed throough is wet and shiny. Achieve a realistic look by using strong tone.

 In many cases, the eye is the strongest part tonally of an animal.

 5 Paint the eye in the reference and not the eye you think you see. The danger is that you create a caricatured eye and, rather than a painting of an animal, you end up with a cartoon cow.
