pastel painting of lambsThis is the second painting in pastels done recently on a Wiltshire farm in the middle of the lambing season. Cold weather has meant that most of the sheep are being kept under cover - the result appears to my inexpert eye to be chaos. Pretty difficult to paint as well since lots of sheep and their lambs were moving about and lambs jumping up and down and climibing wherever they can get to.

In the circumstances this was the best I could do. Many thanks to the farmer for letting me in the shed.

13"x19" soft pastels on pastel paper.
