I've created eight large paintings and several small ones from this same "photo shoot" of this herd of sheep I came across somewhere in North Texas years ago. And I still haven't exhausted the possibilities.
I must say, when the conditions are just right - the light, the subject, the time - you'd best run with it, and keep snapping! Good fortune smiled upon me when I found these sheep.
On this public Patreon post you can read some tips on scoping for photo refs, more about how I found these sheep, and a little gallery of all the paintings (15!) I've done so far from them. ...Be sure to read all the way to the end, for my favorite features in a camera and a terrific digital camera reviewing site!

Feedburner team announced that their email subscription service will be
