20. Jes' Talkin' Cows.....

Jes' Talkin' Cows.....
8x10 oil/wood panel

Two ol' cowboys, talking about... what else... cows! They've been ranching their whole lives.. it's just who they are. I've had the photo reference that is the basis for this painting for quite some time.. my favorite thing? Those suspenders.  Gotta love it.

This is the first painting on the new batch of panels I just made.(thanks, honey, for cutting all of them for me!)  These are such a pleasure to paint on... the roller gives the panel just a little surface... sort of an eggshell, pebbly type surface, which still grabs the brush, but the surface is totally non-absorbent and paint and color stay fresh.

Good grief, how can this be a quick painting- it looks like it has great bits of detail in it- love it, and the sense of light too!
Do you use a plain interior oil primer, like from a home improvement store? Also what do you use for your panels?
Thanks always!
