A Thanksgiving Weekend Painting

A portrait of a polled ram with abstract partially unfinished gray background

Weatherlea Ram. 14x11, oil on linen panel. 2014

I started this painting as a demo for workshop I held over the weekend. Unfortunately I talked for way too long and only had time to do the block in so I had to do most of the painting work today.

The focus of the workshop was on the creative process for animal paintings, so much of the class time was spent on value sketches and color studies, both of which I did as part of the painting process.
