Today was a great day, I firstly had a fantastic ride on the forest with my friend Alison, we boxed the horses out to an area my friend was unfamiliar with, so I could show her some great tracks, nice long canters useful for her eventer with a big stride, Woody kept up well, but being very woolly, as (I have not clipped yet) he got pretty hot and sweaty. The sun was out, and the day was unusually warm for November.
I then completed another of my ink and bleach paintings, I feel more in control of this crazy medium, but I also love how it does its own thing. I have one more to do, having already covered the last sheet of Saunders 200lb rough in ink prep.
The last part of the day was fantastic as I met with my photographer friend Henry Szwinto and his lovely wife Jo,he was doing a photo shoot of my friends horse Tenor ( andalusian) I took my camera down too, captured a few nice photos, but the light was going. I then spent some time helping with the positioning of tenor for the special lighting equipment Henry uses…oh I wish I had better equipment. Early glances at his photos look good, I can’t wait to see the finished photos of tenor showing some truly stunning gymnastic skills, superb handstand photo comes to mind, so pleased I wasn’t riding! I think Tenor knew the camera was there, he really knew how to show off 😀
