FRIESIAN cows are a favourite subject of artist Jennifer Brereton, and not just because their colour lends itself so nicely to the pen and ink that is her usual medium.

"They have such interesting lines," says Jennifer of Oswestry, Shropshire. "I like drawing all Friesians, not just show cattle."

Jennifer, who trained in Kent and Wolverhampton also works in pastels. She spends most summers drawing portraits (of people) while exhibiting at agricultural shows, where she gains most of her commissions. 90% of her customers are farmers.

Jennifer will visit farms to take her own reference photographs and her work costs from £500 for a large picture, while a head study costs from £50. (01691-656913).
