My Sheep Was Too Clean
It was noted at WetCanvas! that the sheep in my previous post was too clean, too white, and that I should add some watercolor mud to darken the coat. So, watercolor mud (usually watercolor mixes that turn to the color of mud) can be useful. The browns, greys, and blacks were actually mixes of Maimeriblu Primary Blue and Winsor Orange RS.
This mud-enhanced painting was scanned, and the one in my previous post was a photo taken outside, so there is a difference in the way the greens show, but I did nothing to the green areas, though the greens in the original painting are probably between the two posted images. Only the coat was darkened.
Enough with sheep!
