This is fantastic...I love this. Brilliant light on the horns.

Love this! Great feeling of the bulk, and marvellous hair and horns.

He feathers away at the rear, and yet still conveys a splendid sense of bulk and presence. Superb.

Great, Julia, tons of mass and muscle....well done!

Absolutely wonderful, Julia. Love everything about it and I am especially homing in on that right horn - it's brilliant. I really like the introduction of the white as it lightens the whole work and gives a new slant on a Highland cow. Also your use of other colours in the coat lifts it so well and adds a completely new dimension.

love this ,beautifully done, think i may of met Hamish was it at loch Achray?

Thank you all for your fantastic comments. Hi Margaret - I met Hamish with his friends in a village near Plockton not far from Kyle of Lochalsh - a wonderful opportunity for photographs!

You have such talent Julia, he's wonderful. I can feel his warm breath....
