One of our first rams was a beautiful Barbado hair sheep ram. There really was nothing much to fault him on, he has a great hair coat and shed fully in the spring, fantastic horns, he was not aggressive at all so we never felt afraid of him. The only problem with him was that he was totally sterile.
We had purchased him at an auction and after keeping him for a year without getting any lambs it was pretty clear that perhaps he was past his prime. We never did have a vet check him, we just sold him at auction with the suggestion he be used as a pet.
As he was handsome I one day did a painting of him using acrylic paints. I really liked the way his horns looked in the painting, I have painted horses and dogs before, but never painted anything with horns. I love how the horns turned out although I am not particularly happy with the mouth, but never mind...
So today as I was a bit bored and looking through some of my older photographs I came upon a picture of the painting of this Barbado hair sheep ram and thought I might mess about with it in Corel Paint. I am not really familiar with the program all that much, I just sort of play with it, doing this or that, seeing if I like it and if not I do something different.
I sort of like the image I created today, so wanted to share it with you. Digital art can be very interesting.
