Finn got a new halter!
And I made a new helmet cover!
Finn and Jaeger working on their Halloween costume.
What do you think they will be??
So Zeta made her way across North Carolina. Our freshly raked yard is a mess of leaves and pine needles.
Too windy for a safe horse ride, so we did horse anatomy with oil pastels.
I absolutely love children’s artsy souls!
No reference, just a feeling.
Rain drums on tin roof
Smell of wet hay rises, breeze
Trees sway in the wind.
Art Prescription: Horse lessons were rained out. Much pampering was done.
This morning I headed out to the barn to sketch en plein Air!
I set up in the shade. Horses are difficult to draw. Lots of proportions and shading to get right.
When sketching, I’m mostly interested in capturing a gesture.
I worked with oil pastels and sumi ink:
July heat beats down
Took an early morning ride
Cool spray for my Finn.
Art Prescription: I got to the barn about 8:30. The heat magnified by the hour.
Finn got a cool spray off from hose. Oh that felt so good!
Bought a set of oil pastels at the Scrap Exchange. Played with some sketching..,
