Cow & Calf

"Just Born"  by Barbara Bradbury 11x14 oil on board

I don't know any thing about them other than my son in law  took a photo after this cute little one when it was about an hour old. Just love the fact an  iPhone can capture a moment like this.
I decided I had to try and paint the two of them, I was attracted by the back light and the feeling of comfort with the calf so close to its mother it seemed a lovely moment.
Many difficulties though, the marking on the animals and the eyes on the mother cow you could only just make out , it took a while to get the right expression but I felt I made a good effort.
