Exmoor Sheep - Acrylic - Box Canvas - 8 x 8 inch -14.5 x 14.5 inch Framed SOLD

The Exmoor Horn Sheep is classified as a true hill breed and is correctly described as a dual-purpose upland sheep. The ewes are valued for their ability to produce finished lambs of the highest quality and are also excellent mothers and good milkers. Although a hill breed, the Exmoor Horn is a docile sheep, easy to handle and contain. When the Exmoor Horn ewe is crossed with a Bluefaced Leicester ram, it produces one of the finest mules in Britain. The Exmoor Horn ram is also an excellent terminal sire on a wide variety of crosses, passing on its attributes of docility, and the ability to produce finished lamb from low input systems. The Exmoor Horn is prized both for its lamb and mutton: the renaissance in the market for mutton signaling a very positive step for the breed. Unusually for a hill breed, the Exmoor Horn produces a very fine quality fleece, which is of excellent colour, good staple length and quality, with a micron count of 36.7.

Pointillism: the technique of applying small, regular dabs of unmixed colour on to the picture surface, relying on scientific theories, such as the precise combination of complementary colours – red/green, orange/blue, yellow/violet. Pioneered in the mid 1880s-90s mainly in France by Seurat who used the term divisionism; see also Cross and Signac.
