Shepherdess Preliminaries

sheep_sketch3I little while ago I did a little painting of a shepherdess with colorful sheep in acrylic – I liked the concept but I wasn’t ever quite happy with the result. Now that I’ve had a little more practice, I’m going to give it a second shot – this time bigger and in oil – and with a lot more references to make sure the old lady actually looks like an old lady. These are a few of the sketches and thumbnails I’ve been doing to get my ideas threshed out. I’m actually getting excited to paint all that wool.
