Its been a true fall day here, cool and wet with the colours of the leaves strong and bright against the grey skies. Now and then a leaf flutters past the window looking like a colourful bird sailing past.
After a number of timewasters, a genuine person has bought Kit or started the process. My concern is that Kit would go to the right person who would give her the life she is used to and treat her well so that she remains kind and responsive to people. This seems to be the right person. A family with children with some horse knowledge and a willingness to learn. I can rest knowing that the horse will be well cared for.
Today I started three portraits. I have the master line drawings done for them and will now decide what medium to complete them with. I'm toying with watercolour for two of them and perhaps coloured pencil or derwent drawing pencils for the third. They speed up the process. I enjoy constructing portraits of either people or animals. The act of watching something appear out of the paper is endlessly fascinating. The first line drawing is shown here. The others will follow in subsequent postings, as will thier progression into colour.
