Bighorn sheep

8" x 10"
Acrylic on masonite.

We visited the Shubenacadie Wildlife Park in Nova Scotia a while ago.  A bighorn sheep in a barn looked out the door at us. The darkness framed the light coloured animal so well, I had to try to paint it in monochrome. This is also one of the first time I'd ever tried painting with palette knives  It's fun to lay on that paint thick!

I've since painted this bighorn sheep again which I also had fun with.  See "Revisiting the bighorn sheep".

Art cards and prints available.
