|'Little lost sheep'|
If you saw last weeks post then this one may look familiar. It is another of my 'Summer on Skye' canvas collages and is currently hanging at the Skyeworks gallery on the Isle of Skye.
This one was tricky to photo as the light reflected off the surface. It is a little less blue than it seems here.
Over the summer I worked on various animal and bird projects. Up until then I had mainly used landscape as my inspiration but as a challenge thought I would try using my collage/paint techniques using Scottish flora and fauna as my inspiration.
The little lost sheep is in fact not sad to be lost. She actually prefers to wander away from the flock where the grass is lusher and there is space to breathe. Sometimes it is good to be lost.
She started off with a friend..
Who she lost along the way...
This last piece was an experiment on plaster. I rather like it. The plaster soaks up the paint like a sponge. I decided to leave it as an abstract experiment instead of fiddling too much with it.
Linking up to paint party friday
and this weeks Artists Playroom link up which is based around the theme of 'challenge'
