Spectacular! he is just so beautiful. p.s. I couldn't get the 'paint' overlay to work for me - possibly my computer isn't capable of the program, but I did find something similar on windows which I will experiment with. Thanks for the link. Bettyx

Ann Buckner said...

You have such a beautiful, delicate style, Judy. Love the sheep!

Judy said...

Thank you EVERYONE for your kind comments!
Of course as always I see lots of things I'd like to improve, though I like the suggestion of wool in the bottom left. He (or she?) was fun to paint. I used only three colours: ultramarine blue, quin. rose and gamboge yellow.

Tito said...

Absolutely beautiful Judy! Great work. Ciao.

Tito, Renske, Maga, John, Marleen, thank you!

Anamaria do Val said...

It's a beautiful work, Judy,but I see something sad in it...maybe the eye.
Sometimes a sleepy eye looks a bit sad...I think you know in mithology Sleep and Death are brothers...your painting made me think

Blaga said...

Very beautiful, Judy! You so masterfully did all these whites...

Michael Bailey said...

As others have said, Judy, Wow indeed. Love those eye studies too. All truly masterful stuff. Keep going!

Judy said...

Hi Anamaria, I see what you mean, I had the same feeling. To me he looks more like a statue, emotionless.

Thank you Blaga!

Thank you Michael!
