After I had painted this picture, someone suggested that my rocks should be a different color. That’s where the handy Adobe Photo Shop came in. I masked out my rocks(which were originally brown and yellow) and gave them a blue hue. I feel like this cooled down the picture and made the lamb and green pasture stand out.
This verse, was the inspiration for my painting:
What man of you, having an hundred sheep, if he lose one of them, doth not leave the ninety and nine in the wilderness, and go after that which is lost, until he find it? And when he hath found it, he layeth it on his shoulders, rejoicing. And when he cometh home, he calleth together his friends and neighbours, saying unto them, Rejoice with me; for I have found my sheep which was lost. I say unto you, that likewise joy shall be in heaven over one sinner that repenteth, more than over ninety and nine just persons, which need no repentance.
