Visiting Northern England: Final Painting # 7

Oil on canvas, 24x12"
Rita Salazar Dickerson
It felt good to work in my studio tonight. Other painting obligations pulled me away from this painting and I was beginning to wonder when I would get back to this little trio of ewes. Their shaggy wool coats covering such well rounded expectant bellies was entertaining to me especially when the sun enhanced them so brilliantly.
Stage 1: Painting in the drawing

Stage 2: Blocking in the colors.

Stage 3: Blocking in completed

Stage 4: Adding texture.

Stage 5: Completed painting with the 10x8" color study. I cropped the final composition. This visually pulls in the viewer and adds a more interesting design.
