Sheep in the Preseli's


The other day coming back from Pembrokeshire I had a good view of the Preseli's as Alex drove. I thought I must do something to include that. I thought I would frame it between two clumps of trees with a path leading into the painting. I then thought that sheep coming from within the painting towards the viewer would complete the composition.

So yesterday I thought I would give it a go. I decided on a light fluid style and after brushing in a few guide lines with burnt umber and doing a ground of burnt sienna went for it. The result a couple of hours later is shown above. It is pretty much finished. There are a couple of things to add but if I am not careful it will lose its fluidity.
