So, here's where I'm at as of this morning. I did detail out the clouds a little more. I darkened the ones that were already dark...hopefully, this will give some contrast to the Shepherd when I paint Him in.
My favorite part on the painting, so far, is the waterfalls on the right with the stream above it. Painting water, for some reason, is so enjoyable, especially if I can capture what my mind sees.
Today's task will be painting in the sheep and Jesus. I believe He's going to be the most difficult to paint. I've got to find a pose and gestures that relate the efforts He's making to save this one ruined sheep. This will not be easy to convey.
