Goslings in the barn

A good time of year to paint some farm animals as so many cute ones to choose from! These dear little goslings live in West Devon here. Thanks to A. for letting me disrupt her Sunday to photograph her animals. In terms of technique, the goslings were tricky due to the lack of definition and general air of fuzziness. I have used the paint much more impasto than normal (especially on the tails) and added more fuzz after everything had dried using tiny amounts of paint and a dry brush technique.
