I painted these cows last week. The first landscape painting from my own photo. It is a acrylic painting on a 30x40cm canvas.
Please give me your critique on this painting. At this moment I do not know how to finish it.

Thank you so much Karen.

Your critique is very informative and clear for me.

 I’m going to paint again on my cows tomorrow.

You are very welcome Annemarie!

Well, I started off thinking this painting was beautiful and finished, but as always, when I see Karen has shared some knowledge, I stop and read what she's written. I ended up watching her video clip and have to say it's one of the most important lessons in landscape painting!!  Well explained Karen!! I have a field I'm working on currently and this advice is so timely. Well done annemarie and Karen!!

I agree with you Linda. Thank you for your kind words.

I will be curious to see if you make changes. I think it is great, and of course, Karen's critique knocked it out of the park. I will be following!

Thank you Micki. It will not be easy.

Hello Annemarie;

What a lovely painting.  I really like the position and expression of the cows!  Animals can be quite difficult to paint and I think you really captured their "cowness." :)

I also found it so interesting to read Karen's comments.  She does a great job of teaching us how to improve our paintings.

I hope you will share the finished painting.  I really like it.

Thank you Sarah. I certainly will post my improved painting when I'm satisfied with it.

I think it is always difficult to make changes in a finished painting.

Here is the painting again from my cows. I tried to make some changes. Honestly I don’t know if it is better now. 

I think I will start over in a few weeks. 

I am glad to have your critique on this one.
