Bighorn (in progress): May 25, 2010

This bighorn ram is being painted with gouache, a medium similar to watercolor but heavier and more opaque. This is my first try at gouache. I'm also painting this on a torn piece of watercolor paper. A strip of the paper had been ripped off for some previous project and I thought the remaining piece would suit this painting. The torn edge kind of resembles the outline of the Bitterroot Mountains, home to this bighorn sheep.
