Baa Baa

These sheep belong to Sandy Ryan. She bought something from me on Etsy and through email, I discovered her wonderful business Homestead Farm. She and her husband have lots animals including sheep....and they sell the most beautiful wool from their sheep. Many of their animals are rescued animals and they are lucky to live out their lives at Homestead Farm. If you knit or craft with wool you will want to check out their site.

Yesterday, I started drawing from photos on their site. I started with Mina, the large sheep in the center. As I kept drawing more sheep, I think I started to get a better feel for capturing their sweet faces.

I think we'll call this one for Everyday Matters challenge #44:draw an animal.

How wonderful!I love drawing animals, too. I spent the whole month of August last year drawing animals at local farms. So glad to see you back at the drawing board.
