Original Oil Painting
by Claire Beadon Carnell

'Ewe and Lamb'
oil on linen panel
9 x 12

This summer I was fortunate to be able to paint several
times at the Dickinson College Farm.  While I was there, I 
took the opportunity to take many reference shots of
 the farm, and also of their lovely sheep.  The lambs
were adorable, and full of shenanigans.  This little one was just
content to walk to the water trough with his mother.

If you would like to see more of my work,
please visit my website or my blog. If you are
interested in purchasing any of my paintings you see
here on this blog, please contact me.

Martine, thank you so much for your comment!

Thanks you, Hilda. I really enjoyed playing with the subtle colors in this painting.

Thank you, Marie - I think that the darker background helps this look like an older style painting.

Sherry - as always, thank you for your comments! I appreciate your noticing the background colors, especially since I put a lot of thought into what would set the sheep off best!
