A group of horses, including two foals, one of which is of an unusual colour even in these days of genetic wizardry. The violet background is a bit chromatically off beat too, but gave me an exciting kick (sorry!). This project was pure nostalgic indulgence; I spent my largely suburban childhood drawing and fantasising about horses, a kind of Velvet Brown who never found her "Pied"....though I did get up early enough in the morning to take an apple to my beloved Darkie, who clopped around that bit of Adelaide with the AMSCOL milk float, stopping of his own accord at each drop off point whilst the Milky jogged back and forth with his grey metal carrier of clinking bottles. Now I wonder how many other proprietorial little girls My Horse used to meet on his rounds!
