Cows

Yesterday Terri Matthews and I went out drawing Dexter Cattle at Bing's Heath in Shropshire. Apparently they're the closest modern breed to the pre-historic ones we have in our new film Shadow Stories commissioned by the new Shrewsbury Museum & Art Gallery. Dexters are very small compared to modern cattle with little legs and quite a shaggy coat. We had a lovely time hanging over the gate and drawing them in charcoal, ink and Tippex until rain forced us all into shelter (them to the trees, us to a coffee shop).
