Lamb 1

The above may not make sense, but I interrupted the carolers faces for quick little lamb studies. While still in the Christmas season and spirit, think now of the lambs that dotted Bethlehem’s hillsides. I desired to make quick gesture sketches in paint, so that I could loosen up after the tight work of getting the previous human faces correct.

8×6″ oil paint on canvas paper which I gessoed for extra longevity. Contact the artist for purchase information.
