Painting of a landscape with sheep in the foreground

Morning Light. 16x20, oil on linen. 2014.

I started work on this painting two months ago and left it hanging unfinished on my studio wall before revisiting the design and adding the sheep this week.  I spent a few hours on the sheep and additional layers of glazing and scumbling to bring it close to completion.

After letting everything dry I put some retouch varnish on the dark areas and decided against doing any more rework.
