How to Draw a Cow with B&W Conte

Many ways to draw farm animals. I learn this technique from the old masters. 

I lay down the shape of the animal on tinted paper. As you can see, black & white conte is well suited for indicating light & shadow of the forms of the cow.

Another morning of trying to capture the mood, outside my window.

Nice to have some milder April weather, but there's still snow in my yard. Let's hope we are all done with snowy days.

MOON SET, 5 am

This might be the last time to wake up & see the full moon sets over lingering white snow, over the western horizon, at 5am. It's a lovely sight, bit it's hard to be inspire with snow, by April!
