Today I went to the lovely inner city farm Gorgie Farm to look at some of the agricultural animals that I would like to paint. It was a beautiful hot sunny day so I thought that would be perfect conditions for taking photos but unfortunately it was so hot all the animals were taking shelter in the cool shade of their pens. I was really looking forward to seeing the pigs but they were mostly asleep with just their trotters visible! I saw some lovely sheep, beautiful cockerels, goats and a cow! Its absolutely fantastic that this farm is right in the middle of Edinburgh. Cant wait to go again!
