What's On My Easel?

Some very round sheep!

I'm wondering if it's just long fur and the shepard is taking them for sheering or if they may be pregnant?  I got the photo reference from a website called "Paint My Photo" and it reminds me of some rural scene in England or Italy. I began sketching out the painting on a much smaller canvas but it didn't have the impact of the sheep coming towards the viewer.  I am very happy that I started over with a much larger canvas.

Here is how far I have taken it today.  There is still some work to be done on their faces and in the trees.  But overall I am liking the scene!
