They are Shetland sheep, so they have colored wool. I've made a couple of modifications.http://www.wetcanvas.com/Community/images/20-Jan-2013/214639-20130120_sheep_in_snowy_field_sm.JPGhttp://www.wetcanvas.com/Community/images/20-Jan-2013/214639-201212_2nd_snow_sheep_2_sm.jpg

I think the composition has too much wide open and uninteresting areas to hold a viewer's attention in the painting. I cropped it down to a more interesting area, although I think you need to put in more variation of color and the straight line of the trees needs be be broken up.

I agree with NiModo, but would also suggest that you plump up the sheep a bit.
'Sheep in snowy field' or 'Snowy field with sheep', a subtle change vbut it does make quite a difference visually

Yeah, the sheep need to be defined just a bit more. But it's good, don't get me wrong.
