Shed & Sheep -- revised

MY IMAGE(S):



GENERAL INFORMATION:
Title: Shed & Sheep -- revised
Year Created:
Medium: Watercolor
Surface: Watercolor Paper
Dimension: A3
Allow digital alterations?: No, please :)

MY COMMENTS:
As a follow-up to my previous version this one is after a bit of a watercolour fiddling I am hoping the merino-pigs have grown a little wool --- and other suggestions have been attended to. The colours in and around the near sheep are a bit fiercer than in the original and my simple graphics app doen't seem to be able to cope with changing just a portion of the work.

MY QUESTIONS FOR THE GROUP:
Better? Yeah or baa-aa-aa?

I think you would have been drummed out of the forum had you changed one strock on the shed but you didn't! As to the sheep, it is good to see they have the coats on at last! Well done.

Thank you Debs and Marie. I think that they will be a little warmer now! I love that shed, too --- in fact I may be dossing down in it on a warm, sunny day!

Re: Shed & Sheep -- revised

I do like the drawing of the shed, but I am a bit critical as the shed and the sheep seem to be part of two different drawings put together.

I am wondering if some cast shadows and texture on the ground would put the shed "on the ground" and give the sheep less of a floaty feel. The composition is a bit spotty so maybe some color in the dirt would pull the shapes together better.

Re: Shed & Sheep -- revised

Thank you AllanFink and Egon for looking and commenting.
I used the wavering path of light from lower mid area to lead the eye from sheep to shed, with the left corner sheep just entering the scene. Maybe it didn't quite work for some viewers? I disagree with you on the shed "floating" --- I think it looks to be firmly on the ground.
Grass is notoriously scarce in inland Australian --- especially in summer. When I was living in the inland sheep country many years ago, I remarked to my wife that the sparse grass lookrd more like occasional shredded brown paper than sheep fodder!

Re: Shed & Sheep -- revised

As I understand you posted this work earlier. Since I'm a new member I can only comment on the latest version.
I like your painting. The shed is indeed lovely painted. I like the vague green behind it. Because some of the sheep are obviously much closer to the observer than the shed is, one might expect some more detailling on the closest sheep. Your painting would win depth, in my opinion. To integrate sheep and shed you could draw sheep before the shed, thus not seeing all of the shed anymore. I truly hope I said what I meant!
