|Sheep! I chose that guy in the middle as my model.|
First I did a red-orange wash on my square canvas. I think the orange color helped me make the blue of the sky as bright as I needed to. I spent most of my time on the sheep trying to get the texture and values just right and finished up with the sky and the grass.
|It's a beautiful sheep.|
This is probably my favorite piece I've done this year. I love how it's realistic-ish and abstractish at the same time. I also enjoy telling people it's a self portrait and explaining that "Rachel" means "ewe" even though that's not a very funny joke. I can't wait to bring it home :))
