Sure, Christine,
I placed the the main image without the sheep over a close up of a moss covered stone. I blended it using "hard light." I ran a dispacement map on it: Filter/distort/displacement map. I then added the sheep and blended them in with an adjustment layer. Summery of the technique is in Caplin's How To Cheat In Photoshop.

Hi Ron,

Just wanted to say that your images are wonderful. I visited your website and immediate fell in love with your style. Do you use photoshop and/or corel painter to get these affects? Just curious. You are certainly a gifted artist. Thanks for sharing your work.
