Day 9 - Highland Cow.

Title: Highland Cow.
Price: £55.00 (price includes postage & packing within UK - please contact me for other destinations)
Medium: Graphite pencil on heavyweight cartridge paper.
Size: 11.5cm x 10cm
When I went to Scotland last year I took numerous photos of a herd of Highland Cows. This is one of them, a very typical chesnut colour although some of the others were cream or black. The cream ones were really pretty but quite young. I wanted to do a background in this one so that the cow had a setting with her. I am not sure why but some of the pencil drawings I am posting are looking a bit "grainy" on my computer screen, the Maine Coon from yesterday was more like how they all are and not so grainy like today's Highland Cow. I will try to sort this problem out and repost the pictures if I get it sorted.

  1. Nice Cow! (you've uploaded that as very large pic - so blogger is compressing from that - probably better trying to resize the pic yourself first)

  2. I had it much much smaller at first when I put it up then decided it was too grainy so put it up at this size to see if it helped. It did help a bit as it's not so grainy but I also don't want to have to put pics up at 2 or 3MB as it will take all my blogger space up very quickly!
