84. And So It Begins.....

8x10 oil/linen

Today's painting of this little roper-in-training is just for practice, done in the spirit of the daily, ie, about an hour and a half.  I mostly just wanted to capture that great morning sun, and the light glowing through his too-big cowboy hat.  
Looks like he has his sights set on something to wrangle with that rope.   I wonder if we panned out if we would see all the barnyard critters scattering in self defense!

Beautiful light, and your strokes give this little guy and big hat a sense of movement, too!

Wonderful, love way you captured the sunlight and the expression you achieved. Cute little guy! :-)

Thanks Judy and Ventsislav... I am hoping to use this little guy in a larger composition.. this was a good chance to practice.. In the larger piece, we will see what he is planning to do with that rope! :-)
