Sea sheep

 Island sheep II

After finishing the first sheep painting, I almost immediately started with another one. This little group was grazing on the sea side of the dyke, only having a bike road between them and the tidal Wadden Sea.

It's great to learn about these lovely animals' behaviour while painting them. So, there is always one "on watch" checking you or the area, while the rest does their grazing or chewing duty.  

I now tried to catch such a scene in this painting. 

Three primary oil colours plus titanium white and burnt umber again. The canvas board is 22 x 15 cm, and it is painted alla prima (or wet on wet).

View the finished painting in my gallery.
