Cattle in November-Catherine

It’s November, and I’m back at Seawind Meadows, in Dennis.  Lucky to have a chance to paint Nicky enjoying a pumpkin breakfast this close! IMG_2548

I decided to focus on the cattle and not a full landscape today.

The cattle were moving, but thanks to their curiosity, and the hay, they stayed close.  Fyi… still loving my Strada Easel and my ArtCocoon!!!  -Catherine
