I painted this scene from my imagination. After visiting the English countryside a few years ago I fell in love with all the sheep grazing throughout the countryside. Maybe it is because here in the southeastern US we don't seem to have too many sheep. I want to paint more landscapes with sheep in the future, so stay tuned.
I painted this at a C&C Painting Journeys Workshop I took in Athens, AL this past weekend. C&C are Carole Foret and Claire Kayser, they conducted a fun and inspirational workshop at Carole's Athens studio. They host great workshops and if you are interested their website is http://www.caroleandclaire.com/ . I was happy with the way this painting turned out.
