The attraction of this subject was mainly the horns and the challenge of modelling their form without losing the texture. I also noticed that wool colour seemed to vary from very black to golden brown, depending - perhaps - on age and how badly they needed shearing. This variation give me the idea to play around with my new tube of Transparent Oxide Orange (Rembrandt) and to see what it could do. My conclusion was that it produces the most delicious, luminous orange whilst also behaving beautifully even alongside challenging colours like blue or black.
