Painting Sheep rather than counting them

Stopped to sketch the sheep 🐑 on the hill above the valley where I live. Sheepcote Valley sweeps round to the racecourse. A salubrious area of Brighton known as Falcon Blanc. Tenuous link but I do seem to have made 🐑 and 🦅 ‘s my current subjects so I’d best look at some out in the wild. Passers by probably thought I was a right freak. WTF?! Who cares baaaa! baaaa! Black sheep, shite sheep have you any wool? Grey sheep, brown sheep have you any clue? ….spare us some change for museli would you?
