Slightly provocative poses your model finds herself in. I would be surprised if it were not so! I suppose Stubbs would have done this if he hadn't concentrated so much on the horses.
Good drawing, Rose! So glad you're back online.
Columnist, an insightful comment if I'm not much mistaken! And I'm still laughing. Thank you for brightening the day.
columnist:From what I've read about old Stubbs, he may have preferred the horses.Is it true he heaved a dead pony to his upstairs studio on his shoulders?You have a gift for composition, Rose. I have to cut out various elements of my drawings and place them in the correct position. Never get it right off the bat.
rurritable, I'm pleased with your comment about composition. I struggle with it actually as I normally just place one iconic image on a page. Looking forward to seeing more of your work.
Jodhpurs- a wonderful solution for women who don't want to ride side saddle- As Mammy said in Gone with the Wind "It ain't fittin' for a girl child to ride a-straddle with her dress flyin' up"
I love these images. Hope you are doing fine and back in the blog saddle.pve
Thank you Patricia. Now that I'm back, I've been visiting your blog and always so impressed by your illustrations.
delightfully delicious, Miss Jodhpurs,especially the bunny. Good to see you -as they say with such a good seat. xo, Gaye
Ah Gaye, welcome back to my world of rose tinted specs and saddles. xx
These are lovely, Rosie. Had no idea a hunting cap (or two) could be so poignant whenmade the subject of a good drawing.
Ah Mr Worthington, that's so good of you to say so. There is also something rather poignant about a riding hat hanging about on the premises of someone who has no pony and can barely ride.
