Sheep - With a little French Chic!


This is Ronelle's card to me.  A gorgeous array detailing some of her neighbours sheep.  I love the way she has managed to catch their expressions.  The one on the far right looks extraordinarily haughty, looking down her nose as if to say "La, who are you interrupting our lunch time?"   I think she has been to see a coiffeur to have her eyelashes curled - only a French sheep could look that chic!  

The envelope matches the card with another wonderfully expressive painting. As others have said in previous posts, Ronelle's use of gouache  against the brown of the envelope works really well.  I don't have any gouache paints nor do I have any brown tinted paper - but I might have to go out and purchase some!

Ronelle's last two cards show her hidden - well I wasn't aware of it before - talent for capturing animals in paint. These sheep are full of character.

These sheep has so much character - and it takes some familiarity to bring off the expressions! They remind me a lot of of Henry Moore's sheep sketches - with an injection of fun.

I love the animal paintings, Ronelle. They are so much fun and I can see that you are a real animal lover.

Just gorgeous sheep drawings, they take you right there to the field next door - what great expressions!

I love your sheep, Ronelle. And never have envelopes been so treasured.
