Painting Sheep I: Completed

Sheep Painting Study I
 oil on panel, 10x8"
This is the way I remember these three sheep, grazing in a North Yorkshire field with the afternoon light shimmering on  their backs.

Once I had brushed the first layer of paint on I went back into the wet paint with a palette knife and had fun applying the final layer with thick strokes of color. I want the viewer to feel like he or she could almost reach out and touch their woolly coats and hear them nibbling on the rich green grass.
