I enjoy the challenge of painting the subtle value shifts in an all black cow. The Dutch artist Frans Hals was a master of black and whenever I am at a museum I always take a very close look at the shifts from warm to cool black. Our first herd of cows were all black angus and they were a gorgeous site in mass on a hillside. Bess has a particularly sweet face and is my favorite Angus model in the continuing Herd Series
