This little sheep has a steep slope to go down. You did a nice job on him.

I like it! There is a great sense of instability in the stance which adds a lot of drama. My small nitpick would be about the accumulation of pigment bordering the sheep's body. That makes it look as if the sky was painted around the sheep, instead of integrated into the painting. Perhaps a gentle wipe with a damp brush around the edges might help ease it out a bit ?

I see it as allegorical! Don't start down that path, little sheep.... It only gets steeper and you won't be able to stop! I like that the sheep seems so calm and unconcerned, which makes his danger all the more potent.

Cute painting, like your nicely saturated hill. Your sheep is making a tentative step.
