This is the third in my series of Lamb Portraits based on John Churchman’s photographs. The first one was an experiment (see thumbnail below), the second a “proof of concept” (see “Cuter Than A Speckled Pup“), and this one is my favorite so far. More lambs arrive almost weekly on John’s farm in Vermont, so this week I’ll try to finish #4 in the series!
Atticus was done using a quick pencil placement sketch, ink, watercolor, china marker, and gel pens. The quilt border features the traditional quilt pattern “Friendship Star”, which I have always loved – it seemed particularly fitting since John’s “Sweet Pea and Friends” Facebook page and upcoming children’s book has developed so many friends and fans!
