Piece of a Painting by Daniel Rigdeway Knight

I've been working on an illustration that I want to be overcast so I decided to practice. This is a piece of a painting by Daniel Ridgeway Knight called the Shepherdess.

I tried a bigger piece the other day and failed miserably. This one I mostly focused on the sky and landscape and not so much on the sheep. So don't look at that part. (ha ha I know you just did.) Anyway it looks like I even got the sky too dark. Guess I'm smarter now and maybe I'll get better at pacing myself as I do more of these.
