Mary Had a Little Lamb

9x12 inks on paper done over this past weekend as part of a WetCanvas drawing event.  Photo courtesy Valri Ary.  In the reference this baby lamb was surrounded by its mother ewe and others so I omitted sketching them to focus on him.  Tombow brush pens in black and burnt sienna were the media used with water on Cheap Joe's sketchbook.  Now you can think perhaps by its title am referring to the popular nursery rhyme, or you could really stop and think about Mary, the mother of Jesus, who did have a little lamb, the Lamb of God.  In this piece, he is looking towards the viewer as if to ask "Will you follow me?"
