Harness Horse III - A Work in Progress

Today is the second day of Art @ the Locks held at Lockside Trading Company in Youngs Point, Ontario and it is going to be even more hot and humid than yesterday with the temperature going up to 86F (30C) with the humidity making it feel like 106F (41.1C) and once again there were severe thunderstorm storm warnings along with the possibility of a tornado.

Needless to say, there wasn't as much boat traffic or people out as we had yesterday which gave me a little time to work on one of the drawings I brought to the show (see post on 08 July 2015).

I started working on the head and added the some of the bridle, indicated the reins and then continued working on the harness.

Once I placed the saddle and the belly band I indicated where the shafts would go and did a little work on the horse's belly and hind leg.

I will post this drawing at a later date once the outline drawing has been completed.

We were about to take down the display when the clouds started rolling in and thunder started to rumble. Fortunately, the storm held off until I made it home.
