Anyone who lives in West Sussex or has had the pleasure of passing through this beautiful county, you may have spotted the ‘green sheep and shepherd’ installation on the roundabout beneath Shoreham flyover. They made me do a double take when I first saw them, but they look fantastic and at Christmas someone bedecked the shepherd with a scarf and the sheep with tinsel! They are a celebration of the South Downs and I have used them as inspiration for the following design. Here is an example of my sheep on a handled serving dish, and my initial pencil/watercolour sketch – hope you like them.
