Swaledale

It’s a place… it’s probably an ale.

Did you know it is also a sheep!

A prized specimen. Farmers pluck their flocks to get the perfect eyes!

Hope the farmer in question likes this one….. (?) (yikes)

Here is how I built it… (Honestly, the scaffolding behind this one. My job is never easy! ha)

So, the piece of wood. Found on a local ramble many moons ago. Awaiting the perfect head to peer above it.

The paint.  A blend of tracing black and bistre brown. Manipulated and moved around on the glass for dense soft fur and scratched into for that gentle furry face.

Lovely. I really enjoyed this one too…..

But ummm, now… better go sort out my brows… ha (baaaaaaaaah!)
