Not sure where to post this preliminary study for a watercolor. I did use watercolor along with a graphite sketch. A Nelson Big Horn Sheep, 8 x 6 on Canson 140 lb cold press. All comments welcome.

Good job! I just love the character of the face, and the horns are beautiful! :thumbsup:

I like the green background wash. Would eliminate the grayish sky and make it all variations of the green. His head is excellent. I don't know much about sheep, but his body seems off somehow. Maybe it's just me.

If it's finished it should be posted in the gallery; if not in the studio. This is a great painting, I've always been fascinated by the big horn sheep. I look forward to seeing more of your work.:thumbsup:
