Call your mother (on Bitter Lake) (SOLD)

Here is what I did to it.
More of those sheep on Bitter Lake. The only white is the white of the canvas. I like it so far, but adding white to color is the turning point. I would say that I have the composition pretty close, and the tones seem as good as I know how to make them. Color should only enhance what I have so far. At least that's what suppose to happen. Thanks for looking.
oil on canvas 24"X12"

Rick, I'm not sure what you could add to improve this. There is some very nice line work going on here that I would hate to see covered up. It reminds me of a wonderful illustrator that painted a lot of movie posters back in the 80's. He painted the poster for "Indiana Jones" and signed his works "Drew". Put it aside and I think when you go back to it, you won't see anything to add or change.
Really nice work!
