Mitcham Buildings


I have finally finished painting the sketches that I did, this is for the across the pages weekly challenge and I am very late with this as I have had overseas visitors.
They dont show up very well in this format I have discovered.
The first is the back of the stables belonging to the house but I did this one in the car park behind and then walked around the block to find the house they belonged to.
After some very pleasant weather it has suddenly warmed up. My visitors were from Holland and were out here to judge at our All Welsh Pony show, we did very well under them and considering they had never heard of our stud before we were doubly pleased, especially when we took out the Champion mare and stallion or colt in both Section A and B and also took out the Supremes in both sections. On top of that the two cobs and the one who went Supreme of Show were bred by my other daughter. One owned by her and one by my daughter in law so it was rather a family affair.
All in all a very busy few days.

Love the sketch on the right but then blues alway appeal to me.

Keep up the painting Penny.
Congratulations on your wins with the Welsh ponies, but what exactly do Welsh ponies do, except look pretty? Do kids ride them?
Okay, I am really showing my ignorance. Have you tried drawing them yet?
