So whilst that has been going on, i've been getting him ready for our first event of the season on the 4th March which i am very excited about. Been cantering through some very wet, muddy fields as i know the ground will be pretty mushy next week. He has been getting better and better with the ground as used to be quite slippy on any mud when i first had him. Seems to have grown into his feet a bit better now! Taking him onto the XC course for some schooling with Kate and Robin tomorrow hopefully which will be fun. Need to practice my test a few times then i think i'll be ready to go!
So on the drawing front, i have started a new drawing of our cat Marble which is fairly tricky. Probably the most difficult drawing i have done so far in terms of the colours and texture. She has quite long fur and she is a lovely tabby colour which is very hard to recreate, but it's a challenge and i'm enjoying it so far. I think this small section has taken me around 3 hours so far, so i think it will be a long one! I am already looking forward to finishing it and hoping it comes out as well as i am hoping it will. So i have posted below a picture of the first stage with a close up as well.

Hopefully will have another update tomorrow as i'm planning to do a lot more work on this over the weekend. Will post the next stage when i have moved it on further.
