Winter Ewe

Winter Ewe (2)
Painted in Watercolours and Pastel
A small study on Saunders Waterford paper.
 Pale washes of Cobalt Blue with a hint of Permanent Rose were quickly painted into the background. Naples Yellow with hints of Permanent Rose was used to shape the fleece of the Sheep.
 Cobalt Blue helped to add shadows on the fleece.
 Strong tonal values of Ultramarine, Permanent Rose and Burnt Sienna shaped the head and legs. Diluted washes of this colour was used on the fleece. I used a palette knife to shape the washes and also used flecks of pastel to help define the texture in the Sheep's fleece.
