Lambs: spring is here!


Lambs: spring is here!

Half way of january I was in aw of ‘the’ sighting: baby lambs jumping around in the fields. An image that touches all hearts, maybe because it reminds us of a childlike innocence and ‘joy in the moment’. A subject that always inspires me. Catching their vulnerability. Unbothered, they put on a jumpy show on shacky ‘high heals’.  I visit the newborns at a farm, to sketch and paint on the spot. Taking reference materials for future designs (I always tend to mix and redesign, since I dislike painting ‘blind from photo’s’) Below some paintings I did of them. The last image of the lambs on grass have featured the cover of my yearly diary (Marjolein Kruijt Nature Diary.)

How to paint Lambs step-by-step:

In my book ‘Dieren tekenen en schilderen‘(PART1) an article is published of little lambs in oil. It’s only available in dutch at this moment. The translated ENGLISH book version is a previous print, and does NOT feature this demonstration. If you don’t mind the language and enjoy the images anyhow. You can get your copy of the BOOK here for €24,95/$25. Also, you recieve a free bookmarker (I’ve got various designs. Add a note if you’d prefer the lamb bookmarker). The book shows over 200 images of animal paintings and drawings of mine.
Order only the bookmarkers (set of 3) here for only €3/$3
