It’s state fair season here in the US and I’m planning on making the most of it. If all goes as planned I will have pages to show from three different fairs
I’m comfortable with my supplies and set up so my biggest issue is my sketchbook. I thought I had plenty of room in my journal last Friday when I went to New Hampshire’s Hopkinton State Fair but in reality I could have used a few more. As it was, I finished 9 full spreads.
The pygmy goats at the petting zoo are perfect models for my warm-up pages.
I have a thing for Runner Ducks!
Such sweet faces.
As I was drawing this Australorp hen, the judge came up and told me that I “knew my chickens” as she hung up the Best in Show sign. Cool!
Toggenburgs, they’re dairy goats!
Look at the length of those horns!
I learned that yes, Llamas spit, but mostly at each other!
No pages left… I guess it’s time to go!
I have another fair to attend next week but this time I’ll have my new sketchbook. Lots of blank pages to fill!
Your animals are fantastic, clearly lots of practice. Great comment from the judge 🙂
