Another good acrylic, Rod. Funny how we're looking at the behinds of everyone. :)

I can taste the dust and the smells, the slow pace and the inexorability of fate. Sometimes you just have to accept that sheep only go just so fast, so enjoy the scenery.

Thanx 4 posting, this pleaseth our eye, Greg

Oh that is delightful Rod. Brings back happy memories of my grandparents' farm (lots and lots of sheep)on which I spent most of my school holidays. Love the background. :thumbsup:

Nice work Rod. Interesting that even from this perspective no two sheep look the same ::)

Nice country scene Rod, one that I am familiar with too.
I love how you've painted the shirt particularly, and the sheep.
Am feeling though, that the washy background is just a bit bland and unfinished?

Great to see you painting again.
