Two plastic sheep for the painting ‘a wolf among the darling lambs’. Value Village, in a bag with some goats, and a rhinoceros, because that’s a natural combination.
Layer one of the painting. Tinted gesso background. I really like it so far.
Close-up of the sheep painting. Painting on the coloured background is nice. The paint doesn’t look thin, the way it usually does.
Lots of in between stages to get to the final version. Add some detail, take it out, add some more, take them out. In the end less busy is better.
June 10th. Had some light oval shapes in the background. Decided I didn’t like them, so I painted something on top of them, then decided I didn’t like that, so I just painted them out.
Another previous incarnation. Trying to balance the light and dark.
