Lorrie #7 - Lamb

Lamb - watercolor 6 x 8 inches



I'm practicing painting some farm animals, using reference photos from magazines, to get some ideas for a larger painting that will be a donation to Farm Sanctuary. (Farm Sanctuary is the country's premier advocacy group for the well being of "food animals"). Each year they hold fundraising events that include silent auctions, and making a donation of art for those auctions is a great joy and reward in itself.

Wow adorable little lamb! I love the pastel colors in his 'white' coat.

Katie, the reference photo for this had gray shadows... but the cobalt blue and alizarin red were soooo fun to play with instead!

Good for you, adding colors to those shadows! It gives your lamb a wonderful mood.
