TIME AWAY FROM HOME, WELSH SHEEP, JEZ EDEN

Joan's sketch of a Dingle Sheep reminded me of a sketching holiday in Wales a few years ago when I made this pencil sketch from life as the lazy sheep obligingly dozed.

A4 Pencil Sketch - Welsh Sheep - Jez
Have you ever seen 'Henry Moore's Sheep Sketchbook' (pub.Thames and Hudson)?  Wonderful pen sketches of the sheep that grazed outside his studio window.  I just Googled: Henry Moore sheep sketches, and loads of his lovely sheep sketch images came up.  Well worth a look, though I prefer looking at them in the book.

Thank you Lynn for this Time Away From Home theme, it's been very rewarding.
