Elodie Farm and Goats

We visited Elodie Farm and its goats last year for one of our plein air groups (and we LOVE their fabulous cheeses) and I am still working from some of the photographs I took while there.

I have never attempted animals in my landscapes, but thought I'd give them a try here .. yep, they're goats -- though I think the one on the left looks like a horse! LOL Anyway, what is it they say, 'practice, practice, practice!'

I"m also working toward simplifying the foreground, though I'm itchy to add a bit of grass .... perhaps by the goats?

It's just great; love the soft trees and the more defined house and yes the one of the left does look more like a colt so you shouldn't have told us! Yes, I agree, some grass for them to nibble on and maybe a tin can or two for the goat to eat LOL. Nice one Lin.

I love the scene and a bit of grass for them to munch on would be good, but what really drew me in was your fabulous trees!!

A serene atmosphere. The trees are just fabulous. Good first try on animals. Love the right goat that is looking directly...and the left animal could be a young horse, why not?

You've got nothing to worry about in the perspective department, you lucky girl. I adore goats and these guys are adorable. The whole scene is just wonderful! Yay for the rain!
