How Now Highland Cow

It appears that I’ve been on a unplanned break from blogging… who knew?
Well I certainly didn’t.
I’ve been enjoying the summer and keeping myself extremely busy, but the autumnal weather seems to have arrived, so I’m thinking it’s time to come indoors and indulge in my indoor pursuits… blogging being one of them.
The other pursuit that I can’t imagine ever giving up is producing and creating more artwork.
This is my latest piece… the Highland Cow.

Yes, I know another one, but I really enjoyed playing with him.
I even left my glasses off at times in order to keep him loose.
I have great difficulty in keeping my artwork loose… that and knowing when to stop!
I thought this cow was previously finished at least three times, but went back to just add a little here and there.
I’ve decided that am definitely calling it a day now and surprisingly I’m pleased with him.
I suppose he just needs a name… I’m saying ‘He’, but I suppose it could be a ‘she’?


Great to chat with you and now I’m off to indulge in another of my new indoor pursuits… making bread!
Maybe I’ll post about my sourdough at another time.
(If you’d like to check them out now, then take a peek at my Instagram account… #denise.allan)
Have a great day and I’d love to hear if you have a suggestion for a name for the Highland Cow.

Eye Of The Tiger

I managed to finish 'Eye Of The Tiger' last week.
I know some people comment that they just wouldn't have the patience to create this kind of drawing, but I really find it very relaxing.
I nip in and out whenever time allows and there's no waiting for paint to dry, or trying to get the right shade of colour or mix.

I was shocked to read that there are actually only 4,000 tigers left in the wild.
That's unthinkable...how can we loose such magnificent animals.
I do hope you like him?

Thanks for visiting and I'd be thrilled if you left a comment so that I know that you've been here.
I hope you have a great week ahead.
