The starting point for these three paintings was being asked to create a painting featuring two larger and two smaller sheep representing Mum, Dad, and the kids. My mind’s been abuzz with ideas, and so far these are the ones I’ve started translating onto canvas. They’re all 76x76cm.
1. The Family Go to the Beach. (Next step: Add a straight, dark horizon line; reassess tone of blues in sky; make faces of larger sheep smaller; darken faces; add another layer of white to the sheep; add a bit more white on the sea shore.)
2. The Family Go Stargazing. (Next step: Add some dark patches to the Moon so it’s a little more realistic and less like a cheese; look at the painting in darker light to see how the tones work.)
