#1 of the 30 day challenge
Hope you had a wonderful Holiday and Hope the New Year will find you happy, healthy, safe and prosperous!
I was intrigued by these sheep in the Malabar Farm pasture. I decided it would be a morning painting so I warmed the sky on the right and for some reason was fascinated by their little stubby tails in the morning light and that was my focal point.. I did the sky first then blocked in the grass and the dark shadows on the sheep. Then I began adding color to the pair. 3/4 of the way through when I looked in the mirror, I felt it needed something more and added a third sheep.
I will start another painting and work on my new website which seems to be difficult for me to learn. Then I must organize my photos on my computer as it is taking too long to find the pictures I want to paint.
Happy New Year. Judy
