|"The shepherds place", 24x30cm oil on canvas panel, no longer available|
This is a place near my home. I've passed by it many times and thought it would make a nice painting but I had to wait until it was a sunny morning to really bring out the beauty.
At first I painted this painting with a flock of sheep in the background but I decided to take them out since I felt it was a little too obvious but I liked the fact that the painting told a story.
So now I'm thinking of putting them back in (only a little bigger, they were too small)
I also did some extra work on the foliage with a palette knife.
The old version is here:
Which version do you prefer, with or without the sheep?
