Painting Sheep IV: Stages 1, 2 and 3

Here I go with the fourth painting in my Painting Sheep series. These 10x8" studies are in preparation for larger paintings to follow. For a moment, I was afraid that I might tire of this theme but once I looked over my reference photos of these interesting sheep from Northern England I am ready to do another.

After I had lightly painted in the shapes of this ewe and her lamb I decided to move the lamb over just a bit which allows more space on the left of the composition.

Then I started blocking in the shapes and colors.

Now I am ready to come back in tomorrow with the palette knife and complete it.
