Grazing Sheep revisited



Grazing Sheep
10x 12 Oil/Linen

I am not really going crazy, but last night I just couldn't sleep thinking about how I wasn't happy with this painting, so I worked on it again this morning.. it's still wet, but I think it's better. I hope you all agree! This is what I mean Loriann about vision... sometimes it's just a little tweaking that's needed, more light, more structure, movement or more softening of edges. The crazy wind has died down now, so it's easier to take a decent photo.

I like it both ways actually. The first one is a little moodier and you know I love the "dark side"! But the new one is lovely too.

Thanks Deborah... I like moodier too, but I had got it all wrong.. light on the sheep, but not on the hills or sky... duh! (Hope you don't have fangs!!)

Hi Lynne! After hearing your explanation i knew exactly what you meant by vision. This painting is beautiful, intimate...I love the golden light. How big is it?
I know I have never told you but I love the painting in your header. Moody...amazing vision. It feel so good. That is one anyone would love to live with.

I forgot to add the size... 10 x 12. I have painted that area ... I think it was the Snake River, on our way back from Wyoming... I need to find one of those over here! I hope you are feeling better each day!

This is beautiful - so calming to gaze on when feeling stressed. I love the long shadows.

I think that's why I paint like this this to stay calm! Thanks Katherine.
