“Rainbow Flock”
Framed Watercolour by Louise Barson

Sheep are lovely to paint, especially in small groups. I particularly like the black faced breeds because of the contrast to their body fleece. I have Swiss Valais Blacknose sheep on my things to paint later list

This little group of Suffolk sheep are painted in watercolour with their bodies painted wet in wet so that the colours merge and create different tones. You have to go with the flow using this technique but with practice you can estimate what will happen and the rest is “happy accidents”. The black is made up from mixing blue and brown – one of my favourite mixes is ultramarine blue and burnt sienna.
