Another soliloquy seems to be forming in odd moments… ‘The Tale of Two Horses’ went on the train into the city the other day as a sketchbook, and came back with several new horses in it. More will come when I have a little time.
This one is taking its own shape more easily than the last one. Sort of ambling along.
Some pages I will start by liking, and then not. Some the other way around. It won’t bother me. It’s contemplative. And because they are horse doodles, it’s a bit like climbing cosily back into my childhood for a while. (And I draw them exactly the same way now!)
I’ve just done a page that is more interested in pattern, shape and contrast than in horsey correctness. It was very freeing. But I’ll play with it some more another time, and take the shapes and tones further into pattern.
