I loved the wool on this sheep when I saw it and decided on using it in this new painting. This is just part of the actual piece, I will post the rest of it soon.
I have been interested in heritage breeds of livestock for quite a while now.
We keep a few "Mottled Black" turkeys and little bantam "Salmon Favorelle" hens, just as pets, and have kept other breeds of bantam chickens over the years now. I will be using them in some upcoming paintings that I have planned also.
