Yorkshire landscape painting, felt art, sheep in the snow, unframed artwork approx 30.5cm (H) x 30.5cm (W).

Yorkshire Landscape Painting of  a small flock of sheep huddled together in a snowy landscape under a beautiful winter sunset. Made from merino wool and other materials.

TITLE “The Huddle”, Yorkshire.
MEDIUM An original felt art landscape, made from merino wool and other fibres.

This was inspired by the field opposite our road end and it often gets flooded in the winter as shown. I have also added my four pet sheep all huddled together in their snowy surrounding (I had 4 pet sheep as a child growing up on a Lincolnshire farm). The sky is from a winter morning sunrise I saw over this field in Yorkshire, where I now live with my husband, children, rabbits and cat.

25% of all sales from this artwork will go towards a charity for the homeless.

The Process

Drawing on my degree in Fine Art, I use merino wool in lots of different colours (as you would tubes of paint) and lay out the loose fibres of different coloured wool onto my base (as you would paint on canvas).

Once finished the next stage is to make these loose fibres of wool stick together using the ‘wet felting’ technique to make the wool painting into a piece of felt. You do this by adding hot soapy water and friction. The hot water opens up the wools scales and the friction (rubbing/rolling) binds them together. During this process the wool shrinks by about 15-20% and you end up with one piece of felt material.

Once the felted picture is dry I needle felt into the piece to sharpen some of the details.

The final felt art is attached to a piece of acid free mount board and mounted as seen then posted out ready for you to take to a framer to choose the frame.
