Livestock

More rural sketching: haughty llamas, inquisitive young bulls and nervous Blue-faced Leicesters, all seen last week in Galloway, South-West Scotland. I’ve sketched sheep and cattle before, but never llamas. Their faces reminded me of camels and kangaroos, with pursed lips and striking eye-lashes, and they managed to look both amused and mildly affronted at the same time!

    Thanks Tina, they’re fun to draw and helpfully held their poses for a long time. Ed
