The noble profile, the slitted eyes, the curls, the baaaaa, the level gaze…
I love drawing sheep.
This gal caught my eye this summer. When I went looking for a subject for my cottage postcards I was drawn to her curious face. As in the past, I begin by taping off a grid of small postcards on watercolor paper.
I make a quick sketch in pencil in each window and then use an assembly line approach to add colors.
Each layer adds detail and the sheep emerges.
The final touches are gold and silver ink…
Each card is the same but different, a one-of-a-kind love token for the friend who receives a “cottage card.”
