Scottish Highland cow

I've always been enchanted with these Scottish Highland cattle. The way their long hair falls across their eyes like a too-cool-for-anyone teenager makes me smile every time. I painted this cow intending to make it have a dark, old world sort of feel, and the yellow background was only intended to be an under layer of painting to give it warmth, but then I decided I liked what was happening on canvas and just let it be.
