“Ewe Looking at Me?”

“Ewe Looking at Me?” Sheep Painting

My fourth painting for advent – 4th December 2013.

I befriended this wooly lamb at Shane’s Castle at Randalstown, County Antrim whilst marshaling at an Ulster Vintage Car Club driving event. We bonded between driving tests on, what must have been, the hottest day of the summer.
I’d like to think she enjoyed the display of vintage vehicles as much as the extra company that afternoon.

Original Painting in Acrylic on stretched canvas – this painting measures 8 x 8 inches and the painting wraps over the edges.

Step by step for the background… working quickly with acrylic paint, not worrying too much about realistic detail but enjoying slapping and dabbing on colour.
