It has been a while since I have painted sheep. I used to paint them quite often, but drifted away from the subject. What excited me about this painting was not the sheep, but the evening light. I used a palette of cadmium yellow, yellow ochre, burnt sienna, raw sienna, asphaltum, and white. Asphaltum is a nice transparent, deep redish brown, one I seldom use, but definitely appreciated in this painting. The painting is 5x7 inches on a canvas panel.
