Finding myself with a bit of time on my hands one Christmas holiday I found a photograph of a Highland Cow in one of my books. I liked his `whatever’ expression and wondered whether I could replicate it. I wouldn’t normally paint from someone else’s photograph, but was using it just for practise; I never imagined it would turn out to be a painting that many people enjoy.
I sought the author, who was pleased to give me permission to use his image. He also asked me for a copy, which I gladly sent to him. Hamish was happily added to my collection of `animal’ cards.
