Celtic horses again.

I do love celtic style art, and I love horses too, but sometimes the complicated patterns are mind boggling. Trying to copy them freehand is just so difficult. Perhaps when I drew this I could have done a third as a template and then copied the pattern for the other two thirds? Or using one of the tools that allow you to draw daisy type patterns digitally. Maybe I will try.

Valley view

View of Trent Vale and Clayton from Thistley Hough

We went for a walk in the evening yesterday, and instead of just taking photos I took a small sketch pad with me. I couldn’t draw all the details I could see and because its black and white it’s hard to get shade and tone, but I did my best. The two blobs in the sky were hot air balloons. Too far away to see any detail and they were travelling sideways on to us very slowly (left to right). This took about 15 minutes, just trying to get an impression of the view over the valley. I wish I didn’t shake, my lines are very wobbly!
