Highlin' Coo

7: Highlin' Coo. This was the biggest challenge of the lot - how the blazes do you draw in watercolour pencil a cow that's seemingly cast in bronze, as this photo shows? To be honest I don't think I succeeded in that, though I am happy with the rich oranges and browns and the strange gnarly horns. The cow is a cracking piece of work - which, since the linked photo was taken, has been taken out from behind display screens and positioned next to Lu-moo-nescence instead, albeit behind a rope barrier - and it's a shame there's no authoritative making-of on the cows, since I'd love to have seen how this one was made.
