Painting Sheep VI: Stages 1-4
These first steps in the painting are important. The shapes, color and composition are all decided during these stages. If I like what is happening now, I am usually happy with the end result.
: I painted in the drawing with a thinned mixture of Transparent Earth Red and Ultramarine Deep.
: Blocking in the background with a mixture of Cadmium Yellow Deep and Cobalt Blue.
: I blocked in the foreground shadows with a mixture of Ultramarine Deep and Cadmium Yellow Deep.
: With varying amounts of Titanium White and the dark brown I created with Transparent Earth Red and Ultramarine Deep I painted in the shapes of the sheep.
