Little Lamb Painting

One of my favourite crafty peeps is Connie at Missing Willow Farm.

If you haven't visited her blog, YOU MUST GO NOW!

At this very moment there are posts galore of gorgeous baby animals. I'm pretty sure if I lived there I'd be making a right fool of myself baby-talking and cooing over all the little lambs and kids.

Connie was kind enough to let me use her photos as reference for a painting or two. Here's the first completed.

He's far from perfect, I know, but he's rather sweet and a nice size at around 31" x 21".

This one was done with acrylic and I think I might try the next in oils. I'm sure I'll regret that decision after about three minutes.

P.S. Just 2 days left to bid on a personalized 'Borrower's Box' The auction is currently at just $11.50 so get over there and START BIDDING!


  1. Nichola, you captured Wayne just beautifully! His twin brother Garth is jealous. :-) You are so seriously talented and I'm honored you found inspiration from our farm. You're welcome to use my photos as reference any time the mood strikes.

  2. This is such a beautiful painting. That lamb looks so real!!!!

  3. Hi Nichola, Beautiful! it's amazing how you captured his facial features and the contours of his body. So precious!!

    Take care,
