Sketch of the day

"Paddocks with Buster" graphite, Sara Light-Waller, 2014

I took advantage of the break in the weather (after ten days of down-pouring rain!!) by doing some outdoor sketching this afternoon. This is one of the paddocks at Chez Jacroux, the farm where I keep my horse. The horse in the paddock is named Buster and he posed for me briefly before heading into the shelter.

Next time, I might sketch some of the farm's chickens, who were quite ready to act as artist models today.  


  1. The sketch with Buster in it looks simple yet appealing.

  2. Thanks! While I was drawing it chickens played around my legs and two dogs kept me company. It was very peaceful. :-D
