I like being a farmer bartering with two brothers in León

Rodrigo y Toño Blanco Gutiérrez are the oldest and the youngest of ten brothers and sisters. They are running a sheep farm together, while one of their sisters is about to start cheese production.
In the film, they not only give an insight into their work, but also describe how life has changed in their village from the days of their childhood till now, moving to more comfort and prosperity, but away from solidarity and the pleasures of togetherness.
As they are two brothers, I do two paintings.
