Sketch book – sheep

The more I draw these animals, the easier the stroke and gesture become. There’s a simplification to the process, as if the necessary motor function has moved (is moving) from a conscious to an unconscious process. It’s moved away a little from the Henry Moore biro/wire frame technique so it’s a bit more mine. They all have muddy bottoms at the moment and what I thought were ewes with udders turn out to be anything but! The one bottom right still looks more bovine than ovine.


Conte on gesso prepped support. Nice tooth to it.
