Have you totally fallen for the cow watercolor painting trend? I had been searching and searching for the perfect one for my dining room, but I just couldn’t put my hands on one that I loved but wouldn’t cost me a small fortune.
After an afternoon trip to the petting zoo with my kids, I found myself gazing at this lovely little face.
Is he not the cutest???? His name is Dexter and he lives in my town. He is perfectly imperfect. His owner told me about his crooked face that I didn’t notice at first but if you look close you can tell his nose turns to the right. I think it is endearing.
I decided Dexter would make a great cow painting for my dining room. Not only was he super cute but this photo was a nice memory of a fun day that I had with my kiddos.
Since I took this photo with my cell phone I was able to use this cool app called Waterlogue to change it from a photo to a watercolor painting.
There are all sorts of settings for you to choose from to get just look you are aiming for.
This is how mine turned out. The colors go perfectly with my dining room so I knew this was the perfect cow painting for me. This post contains affiliate links see my full disclosure here.
Now all I needed was to get it onto a canvas. Easy Canvas Prints was the best price I found to have this photo turned into a canvas. I used a coupon code and if you call them they will tell you exactly what specials they have going.
Dexter is now proudly displayed on my dining room wall and I love it!!!
If you don’t have a Dexter in town to snap a photo of, here are some great cow painting options ready to to hang.
