Black Faced Sheep are a common breed in the UK and they are very fine looking sheep. I wanted to capture her dark face with lots of deep reds and purples and contrast it with her fleece, full of golds and yellows. The fleece on her neck was thick and with the light behind her it looked like a crown of fire on top of her head.
