A couple blog posts ago I shared the sketch and layout of the start of another project. This is the finished look.
This one is just a little better than 12 x 16 inches in size. Made with wool from Shetland sheep, Romney sheep and Corriedale sheep. The shetland wool was used for the background and while it did not felt easily, or tightly, the longer fibres created an effect on their own with little shaping from me.
Many of the scenes I imagine doing with wool are of the sheep and the guardian dogs. Only occasionally does one of a Kelpie pop into my mind, although I do think of many kelpies pictures to do with color pencil. I have a bag of brown/blackish shetland wool the was gifted to me from a reader. It was the brown/black colors and the long fibres that made me see a kelpie in some fashion and when I went through my reference photos the pose of this dog seemed a simple one to try. I have no title for it yet.
