Day 16 ~ New Life

new life

My son’s sheep just had a new baby lamb. He posted this picture on Instagram and I thought I’d surprise him with a painting. I’ve worked on this all day and it’s 4 0’clock and I’m still in my pajamas… Can’t mess with it any more today… 🙂

14″ x 11″   oil on  panel

Here is the finished piece. I softened the shadows…added some blues…added yellow in the hay and took off the darkness on the door, because I didn’t want it to detract from the little lamb.  Done!
