Painting: Sheep in morning mist DONE

The sheep are done.  More detailed but bluer in the foreground, and just indicated with warm cream blobs in the distance.  A  few highlights of ochre and burnt siena for textures on the edges of the hills here and there, a dab of richer prussian blue in the shadows and slap a bit of appropriately-hued paint on the edges of the boxed canvas, signature, and Bob's your uncle.

  1. Fabulous!...It's very interesting how you built this picture up. I think next time you make a special painting you should approach it from the beginning like an online teaching exercise so that would-be artists like myself can really learn from you experience and expertise.
