Peaches the goat (below) settled down and I was able to sketch her up quickly onto a 10 x 10 inch canvas.
Blackberry, her brother was posing nicely too, but I only had time to start one painting that day.
As you can see, modeling is hard work, and it is very hard to hold still for any length of time. I was glad Peaches stayed in one spot for a while, so I was able to work quickly to capture the light and colors.
First off I did quick washes of watercolor on the canvas over my pastel pencil sketch planning to use soft pastels once the watercolor was dry.
I think Blackberry was mad at me for giving Peaches so much attention…
