The horse races are in town for a month and we usually go once. DH likes to bet on a few races and I people watch....and sketch. He won once and I did the above sketch. There are so many 'interesting' people to watch: the old, the young and even those carrying oxygen tanks. Some wear cowboy boots and some wear as little as possible. It's always interesting.
The two on the bench were in front of us: the guy on the left was so skinny, his legs looked like they wouldn't hold him up, while the lady on the right had this odd (to me) shirt on. The sun was blazing and just think what an interesting tan/burn she is going to have on her back.
I like the way I achieved the distance in this sketch and the mountains make a wonderful backdrop for the track.
The horse in the background qualifies for Animal Wednesday!
Happy Animal Wednesday everyone.
