two Marsala(ish) sheep

I was reading an article about Pantone’s color of the year for 2015- it’s called Marsala. my first thought was “why would they pick that boring color?”.

sheep painted using Pantone's color of the year for 2015-Marsala
but then I saw some examples of it being used in interesting combinations with other colors, I thought, “I’ll give it a try in one of my paintings”

After painting the sheep, I think I have warmed up to Marsala. in fact, I have been trying to think of a background color that would compliment my tan displays–and Marsala could be the perfect solution.
