The girls at the Equestrian Center were practicing for the upcoming event this weekend. Lots of medals and ribbons will be given out. MaryJo and I met at the Botanic Garden at the college but soon we drove to the center to draw the horses and tack. Most of these were horses were 18 hands maybe even bigger. I took an old book to draw in because it is easy to hold -- I knew I wouldn't be sitting while drawing. This is Joy. A beauty. She never came out of her stall. And she moved around a lot. Justt when I was on her face, she would move. No cooperation at all. The pen I used is a pentel brush pen that uses cartridges. Love the brush...nice thick bold lines when you need it. And drawing on old book pages is nice because the pen glides across the page. Very, very black ink.
