Calicvol Sheep
Port of Ness
acrylic on canvas, 12″ × 9½″
print available

These hardy sheep were captured at Calicvol, which is part of Port of Ness at the most Northerly tip of Lewis.  The rainbow appeared behind them adding to an irresistible composition.  These sheep were very curious, hoping I had food for them.  The light, wonderfully dramatic, meant I got soaked five minutes later by a passing Spring shower.  However, it was worth it to have caught this moment.
