Painting Sheep III: The First Three Stages

This is the third study in my Painting Sheep series. I started by tinting the panel and then loosely painting in the shapes of the sheep with a small brush.

Then I painted in the main shapes of the first sheep in the foreground.

And then it was time for some fun with my palette knife.  I've had to keep reminding myself that I cannot correct my mistakes until I make them. This thought keeps me from hesitating.

I enjoy loading my palette knife with paint and seeing what effects I can have with color and values. I am so entertained with these sheep and how they all seem to have different looks and personalities.
