It's a New Year and that means New Cows! 
 
2018 is here and I am back in studio! 2017 was a great year for paintings with our highest number of commissions to date. Now a new leaf has been turned and it's time to get back to the drawing board, and this year's Lauren's Cows resolution is to try and focus on rarer cattle breeds. Those lovely animals that don't get the publicity they deserve. So while I stretch, seal and prime my canvases I've started putting together some preliminary sketches for the first painting.  
 
Which leads me to resolution no. 2 - to get some more footage from behind the scenes!  
So here we are- the first time lapse of 2018! 10 points if you can guess the breed! And please let me know what other cattle breeds you'd like to see painted this year!

Top Five Cow Encounters 
As you know by now, my job is a little peculiar. Although most of my time is spent in the studio painting, I do occasionally pop out into the great outdoors and grab a few photos! After all I do need models! This is a really fun part of what I do. I always say that cows have such individual personalities and when I'm in the field with the cows I can experience these characters first hand. There's been a few moments that have really stuck out along the way, so here they are my big top five....
