The other day I took the dog (cassie) out for a long dog walk, in search of the pony herds on the forest, I was in too much pain to ride, but wanted to use the time constructively. It was a warm day, and not one pony was in sight, so I headed to some distant trees, hoping they would be sheltering from the sun. Eventually we found them, and the highland cattle. Sadly because it was so hot the ponies were in a very sedentary state, just standing head to tail swishing their tails, I really wanted a picture with many standing heads together, I did get a few, but the conditions were hard to work with, both extreme light and shadow bouching through the trees onto their faces. So today’s post is more of a portrait painting, which I am trying to step away from.
