The Sheep by ursulav The Sheep by ursulav
I don't know. I was going for something, but I don't think I quite got there. Maybe the sheep needs more dark washes over it to push it back even farther into the shadows, but once you start doing that, you can make yourself crazy, going "Just one more wash!" until you've got a solid black painting.

I don't know.

One to shove in the studio for a year or two until I figure out what I'm missing, maybe.

18 x 24, mixed media, mostly acrylic. Original is for sale, I guess, and prints are available.

Gorgeous. The sheep is soft, cute, and appropriately frightened by the dreamlike environment. I like the use of texture and lighting. Stone and tarnished metal is rendered marvelously here. It's dark and foreboding without being over the top or crass like so many attempts at nightmarish imagery.

The poor sheep looks like he's cowering in the corner and remembering a bad shearing incident.

i think the sheep takes up to much of the picture. For him to be afraid everything need to overwhelm his figure and size. small and backed into a corner with larger scissors?
