I use Americana Paints by DecoArt...they are made in the USA and I LOVE the color choices and they are ALWAYS the same each time I open a bottle!
I then sketched in the design that I had in my mind...I used about four or five different pictures...
I started again adding random strokes with the filbert, trying to keep some of the under shading showing.
After all the colors were laid in with bleached sand and Sky Grey, I went back and added white on top...again keeping the strokes very random.
This is the sheep after I had finished with the white.
I then added some black under the sheep and added more Chocolate brown to cover up where I might have smeared the paint...I might add some strokes to it and I might not...I MIGHT add a back leg and hoof, but I PROBABLY won't...I'm happy with it, but I will look at it for several days and touch it up with spots that might SCREAM for attention! I see a few places that need a bit of attention now...Oh, and I WILL sign it, too.
I love to look at sheep and to think of MY Shepherd who is constantly guiding me, EVEN when I get lost...I hope you enjoyed seeing the steps and that you KNOW that it is JUST paint and IF you don't like it...NOT a big deal, just sand it off and paint over it again...
TODAY is a blank canvas...paint a BEAUTIFUL picture on it!...Blessings to YOU...~charlotte♥
