Topic: Thursday Photo Challenge
|Thursday Photo Challenge this week is Spring (baby animals, birds, flowers..) I have been searching for any decent bird or baby animal picture in my files and come up almost empty. My digital camera doesn't do well with birds. It makes small picture files and so doesn't do well with zoom shots. And, last spring I tried endlessly to catch the cardinals out back but every time they came in sight the camera had timed out.|
This was a sheep farm in Cushing, Maine, that I used to frequent for some good lamb sketching until the farm packed up and moved north for more land. I did a series of watercolors of the sheep back then, some of which you can see below. This photo was taken with my old Instamatic camera, in 1998. It has been scanned and cropped. As for the sheep, they are wearing coats to keep their fleeces clean. Clean fleece get a better price than dirty ones
This is a card set from my series of sheep farm watercolors.
