Had done this one in acrylics about a week ago.
Now I wanted to try oilpastels on velourspaper and chose to redo this scene.

hello Dick

I prefer your oil pastel goat to the one you did in acrylics!

If I can offer you my thoughts... Is that another sheep on the left? It's not clear. I think I'd like to see the grass covering the paper more heavily in the foreground, and a slightly darker shadow for the goat, using the darker grass colour and some complementary reddish pastel instead of the grey.

Oil pastels are great, aren't they? It looks as if you are working happily with them and have a nice loose style.

Good one! :)

I like your goat. Great handling of the subject. I agree that based on the rest of the painting and the evident time of day, the shadows should be a lot more contrasting. Still, I like it.
