Colorful lamb family by Linda Young Watercolor paintings

Baby Lamb family by Linda Young, watercolor 10 x 15"
Some of you painters who were at Art on the Farm will remember these lambs.  These lambs were at the Dickinson College Farm just outside of Boiling Springs.  It's been two years since I've started to paint them.  Using four different colors for the underpainting in four different sized rectangles, the lambs were painted with complimentary colors throughout this piece.  The original inspiration to paint in this style was from a workshop I took with professional artist Judi Betts.  The painting technique was difficult because I had to continually remind myself what colors to paint without creating mud.  This painting was similar in style as were the Boer Goats from two years ago.
