Highland Cattle

Artist: Oliver Meinerding, United States
Artist Statement: Years ago, I had the pleasure of visiting Scotland with my wife. Not only were the land and architecture astounding, but so were some of the animals. Particularly eye-catching were the iconic Highland Cattle which I was able to grab a few photos of. With this sketch, I was hoping to exaggerate the muted colors of the Scottish landscape that day and just have fun interpreting the big shapes and shaggy tufts of hair found on the beast. They have so much character with their size, color and texture; it really was a joy to paint.

MEDIA: Traditional gouache and acrylic gouache
SURFACE: Zeta Series – Extra Heavyweight – 270 gsm – White – Smooth Finish
