Morning Sheep Market by Colin Allbrook.

Morning Sheep Market is an original oil painting on canvas.

This sheep market at Blackmore Gate on Exmoor is held regularly throughout the year with often a thousand or so sheep for sale. The pens gradually fill through the morning as farmers from across the district arrive ready for the auction around 11am. On this cold but sunny November morning there is plenty of activity with farmers leaning on the pens chatting to one another, and the sheep constantly being moved in and out of the auction ring. The shifting sunlight and shadow gives depth and interest as it highlights different areas of the market.

61×91 cm.
Sold framed and ready to hang.
Signed Colin Allbrook in the bottom right hand corner.

Size: H:61 cm x W:91 cm
