Just a quick post today as very busy with commissions that have come in really late, due to customers only just realising that this year Christmas falls on December 25th. It's a privilege to be asked, though, so I am not complaining.
This calf was difficult to paint and nearly turned into a wiper. The trouble is I had got to the point where the calf felt real to me and you can't just "wipe" a calf, can you? No. It would be cruel.
