I am going to paint some sheep that look like mountain goats that I saw in Ft. Davis, Texas last Thanksgiving.


I started painting the rocks today.



I added the mountain sheep today.


3.17.2011 >>> Happy St. Patrick's Day!

I began battling with the grass today!


More work on the grass and the foliage in the background.


I did more work on the grass in the background and added blue to the sky.  I also worked on a plant on the left side of the panel that you cannot see from this photo. I like how this one is coming along! :)



I worked on the front sheep mainly today and a bit on the middle sheep.


I worked on the yucca plants- the one in the foreground and the second one in the middle of the painting. I added more yellows and more contrasting dark brown.


I worked on the middle goat today.



I started changing the rocks today.


I continued working on the background rocks and I started to work on the foreground rocks.  The middle one is a bit too dark right now but I will fix it soon.  I also changed the color of the sky... though I might change it back.


I worked on the sky more by adding more manganese blue but I still don't like it.  I also worked on the colors in the rocks. More work is definitely needed.  


I changed the sky again.  I added some cobalt blue and white and tiny bit of dark brown and I like the color better.  I also changed the rocks in the background to more orangey browns and added more dark reds to the shadows of the rocks.  I also started adding more white to the grass and defined the grass more by the center rock and also in the back.

I should finish this weekend... hopefully.


I added some more yellowish brown to the rocks in the background.



I worked on the goats more today.



I changed the color of the middle rock today.



I worked on the color of the rocks more today.
