Winter Cattle

Today, whilst out walking, I came upon these beautiful monochrome beasts basking themselves in the January sunshine.

I was struck by both the size and angular shapes of these animals, which are Galloway Belted cattle.

In the sketch below I used a marker pen to depict the smaller cow and pencil & fine liner for the larger one & the tree. The  strength of the marker brings the smaller animal closer, whilst the other is pushed into the background by the lighter tone of the pencil.
