4 And a Half Sheep

"4 And a Half Sheep"  (pastel, 16x16 inches)  $950 framed

One of my most daring compositions yet. When composing, I came up with several different crops from the same reference photo; this one was my favorite.

I also used a stippling technique when applying the pastel primer, which perfectly replicates the natty sheep hair! I love the effect but I'm not sure if I'll do it again; it used up a horrendously large amount of pastel! See my entire process in pictures:

This one is still available at Cactus Jack's Gallery until January 28.
