I heard once, there is no failure, just steps closer to success! Nothing could be truer!
This week I’ve been focusing on sheep. On our trip to New Zealand last year, we visited a lovely place called Smith’s Farm and encountered some friendly sheep.
I am attaching all three practice versions, all on Arches 300gsm CP not paper, all about 7.5″ x 11″, approximately 18cm x 28cm.
The goal was to be loose, something I am still struggling with, but since there is no such thing as failure, I will enjoy the journey of practice.
After each version, I redrew the sheep, sketching and shading, wanting to keep my strokes to a minimum. I was happy enough with the third, even though I knew another attempt wouldn’t hurt. But it’s time to move on!
