Rotten Weather!!!

Not much to update pencil portrait wise, I've given in to temptation and started work on an entry into the pet portrait forum competition so nothing can be given away at this point, it's all top secret as we all have to put our own version of the image together but I will keep work in progress images and will post as soon as the deadline has passed. The main image is of two tigers and so far all I've managed is part of one head so I think it's going to be a long uphill battle to complete it.



As for the day job, this Red Marley, today we were in a patch of pine with bramble and fern up as far as our shoulders and beyond in some places, believe it or not Dave is in this shot above waving at me as I couldn't even see where he was, got a few thorns to remove now!! You can just see Dave's hand and Andrew's slasher in the image below.

But at the bottom was the lovely ride shown below, then of course we had to walk all the way back up for lunch, nevermind.

Anyway, we all got wet when the heavens opened so it's an evening indoors drying off I'm afraid.


A few sickies have been pulled today, both Tess and Cass, the golden retrievers are off ill, at 15 they are probably due a few days off from all those years of work anyway. Hopefully they'll be back soon, I miss Cass barking at us to keep us moving, I did say she is a bit of a slave driver. And some bad news, my pet cockeral Fred died yesterday, he received the honour of a full burial in the garden. Now BB the rabbit has no friend to run about with now. I was quite gutted as he would crow when he heard my voice and I could hand feed him. Poor old Freddy.
