The Cow-Charcoal

My little family is moving out to the country in about a month- and I'm excited for the possibility of getting some cows and chickens! Thinking about cows made me want to draw one. This is charcoal on tone paper. Any comments or critiques are welcome.

Thanks for looking! Kim

Arh - your cow is great . I love cows - this brings back memories of my childhood, when our garden backed onto a field of cows.
