Jumping 1-3 - Three Works in Progress

Another cold day with the temperature at 4F (-15.6C) with the wind chill making it feel like -8F (-22.2C).

Jumping 1

It is an unpleasant day outside and it was much nicer to be inside by the fire. Fortunately, I found a program featuring stadium jumping on television.

Jumping 2

With pencil and sketchbook in hand I chose to try and capture some of the horses going over the fences.

With the way the cameras followed the course I worked between three different sketches trying to capture the position of the horses in the different directions and angles.

Jumping 3

It was an interesting exercise; using bits and pieces of a number of different show jumpers and it has given me three sketches to complete at a later date.

All of them have the potential to become paintings and if they do I will also post them.
