Lamb and Ewe in watercolour and ink

As winter carries on her fickle thing here in Southwestern Ontario (shorts or snowsuit?)
I continue to draw inspiration from my collection of reference photos taken last spring.
A short drive from my home lands me in the thick of agricultural Chatham-Kent,
where fields of gold and green are sown.  Dotted in among the fields is the odd hobby farm where one can spy donkeys, sheep, cows, and horses.  

In this 7x7 inch watercolour and ink painting, 
I employed the use of shadow from the ewe
 to provide the necessary contrast to the lamb's form.
