Painting: Sheep in morning mist 3

I've warmed up the hills and done the mist... I think it will stay like this; the atmosphere is coming along nicely.  Next the sheep.  However before I tackle them I'm off to vote.  


  1. Hope you have got a lot of fluffy white paint as rumour has it that NZ is awash with sheep. Why not stick in a garden shed with a tin roof and some gingham curtains too?

  2. ....and a hobbit. Isn't NZ awash with hobbits ??

    (I learn everything about the world from Hollywood)

  3. Great pics:) Always good to see NZ work online.

    and as i sit around reading black boxes blogs ( how I found you), thanks for reminding me to go and vote!!!

    Ooh, I like that! :D

  5. I think this is awesome. I like it a lot. I wish I had the painting gene, but alas, my dad only passed it on to my brother.

    I can take pictures though!

  6. Sheep are not fluffy white YP, they are sticky cream. and I'll pass on the shed this time. Silverback, there is a Hobbit hole inside the right hand hill. THe door is around the other side.
    Thank you fi, Jay and dijea. Please come back for more! I'll come and play over at your place(s) when I've done a few more paintings - I have an exhibition deadline...!

  7. Always suspected you were an exhibitionist, Katherine.

    Looking forward to the addition of some creamy sheep though. Don't fall asleep drawing them !
