How to Grow a "Goatee"

I felt this winsome goat to be particularly handsome sporting his goatee...the real thing that not every man can successfully accomplish!  Thus, his name....

Sweet natured and playful, this goat was a willing subject to photograph.  Most just want a scratch behind the ear or some food like a dog.  Goat curtesy of Celebrity Dairy.

This fellow is painted on Richeson's pastel surface on hardboard with a soft sienna coating.

  1. I really like your composition and colors. You placed the goat so that his head disrupts the horizon line. The blue and gold background work very nicely. Great job!

    1. Thank you Kathe! Made up the background to compliment him....he was fun to paint :)
