In the evening yesterday I got another couple of pages done in my Travel Journal about our holiday in Ireland. And this is them:

It documents the boys having a short pony ride along a quiet country lane - in the rain, naturally. I walked alongside taking pictures. At one stage we saw a massive hare on the road in front of us. Pesky thing dashed out of the way sharpish before I had chance to take a photo.
Again I used my
messy gesso background technique, layering it quite thick because I so like the texture that it creates.
The green horseshoes were made individually with a punch. I drew around each and added details with a fine black pen. I'm a bit impatient and kept clogging up the nib because I didn't let the gesso dry properly first, oops!
I love this picture of the boys, looking a bit nervous before the ride:
They have had their hair cuts now, we took them to have them done yesterday. The older one, Ryan, said that 'he was going to wear a hat to school!' lol.
Thanks for looking and for any comments,
