Sheep in mid-morning
Sometimes after I drop my son off at school, I will drive around the country roads looking for inspiration. Coming over the rise of a hill one morning, I spotted a herd of sheep out for a mid-morning graze. They really couldn't be bothered and insisted on walking away from me, but I was able to get a few good reference shots (that didn't include their behinds!) I tried to capture the pure simplicity of the morning in this painting as well as the soft, round plumpness that sheep have. This painting is done in oil on panel and measures 10.5" x 10.5"
