Baa Baa Black Sheep

I had a very small black frame and I decided to do a little scene with houses and trees and a black sheep. Using black is hard and sometimes it gets too black. I learned to take out some of the thick paint and when it dries I use a sharp Exacto knife to scrap away layers to get a lighter look. Baa Baa got really black, so I had to doctor him a little. I did use a fine tip Sharpie for accents on this watercolor.
