The Whimsy of Five Cows
Hot Pressed paper is my favourite surface to use with watercolour. The pigment glides effortlessly across the paper and produces wonderful blooms and blends quite easily compared to a Not or Rough paper. Though please remember HP is a fast paper and I do not recommend it for watercolour beginners.

Cow studies on scrap Rough and Not watercolour paper
On my car journeys around the UK it is always fascinating watching the cow breeds change as the miles flash past. Belted cows generally means we have reached the north near Cumbria. Highland cattle in large numbers means we have reached the top end of Scotland or the Scottish isles. The lovely black and white cows are mainly seen where hubby and I live in the south and surrounding counties. Geography and the different types of breeds go hand and hand.

My cow studies took me down the route of individual differences between one cow and another within the same breed this week. Just like people, animals have individual characteristics and personalities.
