Day 4 - 30 Paintings in 30 Days

Well it is Day 4 and I am still going! This has been such a great learning experience for me. This is my third sheep and they all look completely different. This one was particularly interesting because it was just a head study and it was fun looking at how all the little hairs grow in different directions on their sweet faces and then their wool is just crazy going in all different directions. It was interesting trying to capture that in a painting. I hope you enjoy it!
