I have not been riding since about a year ago and thought bringing a sketchpad along might ease the pain and, sort of, soften the blow of getting back in shape. This is a pretty nice and simple sketch of a colt in the high grass soaking up some rays. The youngster was mostly chestnut colored except it's head, which was almost completely black which also made it rather hard to see details of it's face silhouetted against the grass in the noon day sun.
A lot of faking going on here with the pedals, as well as, the pen and pad, for sure!
