Highland Cow Pastel Painting

1 Comment

A friend (thanks Michelle!) has let me use a reference of a Scottish Highland Cow that she took in front of a distillery on a trip to Scotland. I am making some changes including removing the distillery, but it should be fun to do. I’ve decided to work small (6″x7″) but if I like it I may paint a larger one later on.

This is like a first draft – a lot of colour but no definition.  It was fun to get a lot done in a short time

I can’t wait to work on the cow. I’ll probably have to use pastel pencil to get any sort of detail, but that’s no problem. This should be fun!
