I spent Friday night in, and needed occupying late into the night, as my daughter needed a lift to a friends house before making their way to the airport, for a girlie summer holiday in Greece. So out came the brushes and paint, and then I went through my horsey pictures to find one of my friends Arab . I must say I did rush it as I was concentrating on the clock, but it is ok for a quickie. My plan while she is away ( as I have control over the TV ) is to watch the two DVDs I bought, and have now received, Jake Winkle and Jean Haines. I am keen to try their techniques, to achieve a more free approach to my pictures. I have lots of lovely horse photos to use while practicing, I just need to find the time, with the nice weather now here, I am keen to get the ponies out for a ride as often as possible. Today was very productive, vets/ farrier/ lunged three ponies/ washed three ponies manes and tails( struggles looks white again) cleaned house/ walked dog…………….and a little time spent working on a watercolour of a WHOLE horse, not just my usual head pose.
