Terrific! Still have my pictures of Highland Cows from when we went to Scotland. There is actually a farm in NJ, USA that has a sign saying Highland Cows at the entrance but I never checked it out. Pam:wave:

What a fabulous job on the coat and the texture contrast with the horns. And I love the lighting as well. That one eye peering through the bangs adds so much personality.

Great Job!
These cows always remind me of the illustration on McCowans toffee wrappers. My Scottish wife calls them "Heeland coos."
Beautiful painting.

What a wonderfully interesting subject. I doubt we have these here in the states, so for me, this is a treat. Your handling of the different textures is spot on.
