Neocolor II Portrait.......Dorset Sheep

Last summer we spent a day at the
Oregon State Fair

One of our friends was exhibiting this gorgeous
Dorset Ram (sheep)

In the sheep industry his horns are known as a
Full Curl

I couldn't resist playing around with this image in
Photo Shop Elements 4:

Here is the ram printed out on 13 x 19 fabric

Now the fun begins...

At this point he is all colored in with
Neocolor II Water soluble Crayons

Now it is time to paint:

The right horn is painted...
Yes, these crayons have that much pigment in them.

Both horns are painted...

His body and the hay are painted...

Here is the Dorset Ram all painted in

I can't hardly stand myself...
I think I have to take him out to the Thread Shed
and get him under the needle!

He looks wonderful. Love the contrast of the background to his colouring.
