I am working on simplifying strokes and shapes in some of my paintings. Since these sheep live right outside my window they are constantly at the ready to model for me, and the fact that they move around a bit is the perfect situation for me to be quick and brief with my strokes and my observations.
In doing this I am partly preparing for my upcoming workshop with Roos Schuring where hopefully we will be dealing with shifting clouds and lighting on the beaches of Katwijk, Netherlands. You can see what I am talking about at her blog: http://roosschuring.blogspot.co.uk
The one that has the most white space around it is my favourite so I signed it. It has about 4-5 strokes in it.
