Spitfire, the mini-lamb ...

Spring time is just around the corner ... and with it this years batch of lambs, which made me want to paint a picture of one of last springs cutest!



Spitfire, photographed by Ivan. I began to get to work with coloured pencils and a few pastel sticks, remembering a little runt that died suddenly, last September.



and suddenly, there he was, with his distinctive ears glowing in the sunshine!



and Daisy was inspired to recreate Spitfire too, and here is he being sniffed by three rats!
