A Sheep



Hi! This was fun to paint, I added lots of texture with a palette knife at then end to suggest hair. Sheep and goats have creepy eyes don't they? lol I had those yellow eyes painted in with those horizontal pupils and then I decided to darken the eyes and just suggest them, I like them better. This is oil on a 6 x 6 Raymar panel.

Please check out some of my artwork on Ebay

Nice of you to visit- Have a nice day!

I love this Barbara! Especially all the colors in the wool. And you're right about the eyes, I've always felt the same way. Creepy! I like what you've done with them here. :)

Thanks Crystal, I think it's so fun to paint white, adding colors to make it interesting. Glad you don't find his eyes so creepy, lol.

Love your sheep, Barbara! had to laugh though at your description of their eyes. I raised dairy goats for many years and always thought they had the friendliest eyes. But then I was always "up front and personal" with my goats :)

Barbara Pask said...

Sorry Sunny, maybe if I got to know some sheep on a personal basis I might not feel that way, lol. So good to see you. :)
