My grandparents had a dairy farm when I was growing up. They had Holsteins. When I was young I thought they had 1000’s of cows, but I read recently that the average dairy farm in Canada milks 73 cows. So I guess they didn’t have 1000’s of cows. Regardless, I always thought they were beautiful and still do. They are super fun to draw if you can get the shape of the head correct – but actually I think that is true of anything you draw.
So in honour of #Inktober …. here are Two Cows ‘K? I don’t know what they are doing. I don’t think they do either.

In addition, here is a formal pencil drawing I drew a few years ago.
