Ray, you did nice work on the pasture and cows.  I really like your trees as well.

You can be proud of this.   :clap: :clap: :clap: :clap: :clap: :clap: :clap:

I tried again with the cows - getting slightly better but they are really too small - I don't know how the miniaturists did it!

Thank you for your nice words, Rita. I'll keep trying with the cows. If someone painted your little cows they would be accused of deliberately making them look baby cute! They are lovely wee animals!

There's the solution to your problem Karen....you don't need bigger cows...you need a smaller pasture!   :whistle:

Seriously Karen, you have a wonderful painting there. With the rolling meadow, and the trees, your cows look fine, everything in proportion.  Super job!   O0   :clap:   :clap:
Cheers, Val

some lovely paintings here, well done guys  :clap:

Okay some feedback-
Gail - soften the edges on the inside of the front cow, eg where the rump and the body meet, they are a bit too hard. By softening they will flow into the body better
Musica - Extend the legs of the front cow some more, remember he was originally standing in a field of flowers so we had to use our artists license to add the legs back
Karen - if you are battling to get the sizes right use the cutouts method, it works like a bomb O0

Why is it that when you take the photo and post it that suddenly you see all kinds of things that need fixing?  LOL  I think they're mostly minor but here goes anyway...
