Murray Grey in Progress - 1st Pass

I've become a little bolder about showing my work in progress, and since this particular painting is probably going to take some time, I thought I'd try it again. I've got four days into the big cow so far, and each of these images reflects one days work. Now that I have a full under-painting done, I'm going to set it aside to dry before I begin the second pass. While it dries, I'll be working on a new set of ebay paintings which I'll be posting possibly as early as Monday. I'll have to see how it goes. I plan to continue photographing the progress of this piece to it's conclusion.

I know what you mean: I'm bashful about showing my works in progress, also, but I personally love to see how other artists do things.

Love the cow so far!

Nice Cow! Each stage is absolutely beautiful! Unfinished or finished! If I were ever to purchase a cow painting, I'd want no other than this!

Thanks everybody. It's a little un-nerving for me to post images of paintings in progress. I never know when I start if it's going to work or just fall apart somewhere along the way. Hope this effort concludes with a satisfactory painting. Neil

This is great, so far! Thanks for sharing it with us. I am also working on my largest painting and it's scary, all in itself. 24" x 48". I'll be watching your progress with great interest! *grin*
