|A sneaky peek of Phillip's eye|
I had hoped to have Phillip the Pheasant finished to post this week but although he's almost there, he's not quite ready so instead here's a sneaky peek of part of the painting. I should have him finished in another session or two.
So in lieu of the entire painting, here are a few more of those sketches I did for the 75 day challenge - yes, yes, I know I finished the pesky challenge on 5 April but I still haven't posted all the sketches (and looking at some of them, I'm not altogether sure I should - the frustration and desire to have finished the challenge were setting in around this point and they get much quicker and much sketchier - which I suppose was the point!) I'm posting 6 of them today to bring it up to 60 otherwise I'll still be posting them come Christmas!

I don't have much to report this week. Let's see - we did find another sheep with it's legs in the air and her wee lambs all gathered round her - we happened to take a wee back road we don't normally take so you could say it was serendipity for the sheep that we found her - we went into the field and got right up to her before fear of us overcame her apparent inability to right herself and she got on to her feet again and tootled off without so much as a thank you! S said we're turning into a couple of hippie sheep rescuers! I love it!

I was telling the girls at the Animal shelter and apparently another volunteer also found two sheep on their backs this week but when she got up to one of them, although the sheep was still alive, hooded crows had pecked her eyes out - totally horrific, I know, and another reason why it's so important to help them back upright.

By the way, if you didn't see my post from Sunday, you might be wondering who exactly Phillip the Pheasant is so here's a wee recap:-
Happy Paint Party Friday and thanks to everyone who leaves me such wonderful and encouraging comments. I do try to get round as many folk as possible - the only downside to such a great on-line art community is finding time to visit everyone!!
