Merely a Herd of Sheep

"Merely a Herd of Sheep" (detail)
This is a (bit of a blurry) detail shot of the hooded sheep project I posted about several months ago. I have had it finished, but I have yet to take a high quality photo of it. So, I'm sharing a taste of it. Several more illustration projects will be shared once they are photographed properly. :)

Ready, Set, Go (Says I to a Mandarin Duck)

"Ready, Set, Go"
This oil pastel portrait of a Mandarin Duck
 from the San Diego Zoo is ready to be framed.
Size: 10.5" by 10.5"
Price: $90
Shipping: $5

This is one of the first oil pastels I have done, it was created in December 2010. It was painted with oil pastels on bristol board from a photo I took of an endeavoring Mandarin Duck at the San Diego Zoo. I sealed the oil pastel with Sennelier oil pastel finish, which leaves a slight glossy sheen, but I would still recommend framing it under glass.

California Bighorned Sheep

This is my first oil pastel that I did in the weekend workshop. (I did it prior to the other oil pastels I've posted.) I rather like the creature and its inquisitive expression.
