OK time to start and put a little bit of life into our landscapes, so we
are going to start with some sheep. As you can see from Sheep 1
all Iíve done is drawn a loaf of bread with a little lump on the end,
for this I have used any old pencil.
with the No.8 round brush, pop a little bit of yellow ochre well watered
down, onto the top part of the sheep. Now a mixture ultramarine blue and
burnt sienna, not quite black, round the back bit and underneath forming
almost a 'V' which creates the back leg.
wash out the No.8 round brush, squeeze it out and simply stipple the
colours together. Still with the No.8 round brush and again with
ultramarine blue and burnt sienna, but this time black, fill in the lump
on the end. A quick swath of grass underneath him and hey presto
let's put him into a landscape with a couple of his brothers. For the sky
in the landscape, I have simply filled in the sky area using the 3/4"
wash brush and cobalt blue. Add a tiny touch of light red to the
cobalt blue to grey it down a little bit.
Add a little bit for clouds
and thereís a very simplistic sky. Still using the 3/4" wash
brush add a tiny touch of light red into the cobalt blue and fill in a couple of distant hills. Little bit of yellow ochre
underneath these (just one quick swath). Now still using the 3/4"
wash brush come further forward with a mixture of Hooker's green and
burnt sienna and add a tiny touch of blue into the immediate foreground.
fill in the sheep as before, add a little bit of shadow underneath them,
again cobalt blue this time with burnt sienna, and there we have a
little moorland scene with sheep.
that wasnít too difficult was it? Creating a nice little landscape
complete with some life. Guess what - no trees.
