Project Description


Errol is one of those tenacious men of the outback I hold my hat to, enduring years of drought and other unpredictable conditions to realise his vision. He and his wife Candy breed merino sheep with highly specialised characteristics best suited to our Australian climate for use in lightweight woollen clothing and other niche markets. Candy commissioned this portrait as a surprise for Errol. Errol would be a bit happier I know if I didn’t let my artistic freedom get carried away with the colours in the wool since he prizes himself on the whiteness of the fleece!
