At the fair again

Carters Steam Fair (“100 smiles per hour!“) have been back to our local park. I didn’t draw the Steam Boats, as promised last time, but I did try sketching the merry-go-round horses; this was tricky as they kept setting off again every 2 minutes, hence the nightmarish multiple heads! I also drew other people there, watching the rides and taking photos, various dogs and birds, and I found a plein-air oil-painter at work (he was painting the Steam Boats…). At the bottom there’s a Helter Skelter from another recent fair, and a previous (better) attempt at the same ride.

    love seeing the two at the bottom….different mediums matched up and styles…I love the muted feel and colors of the pastel.

    Thanks Rebecca, compare and contrast! The second one is dilute gouache on ‘kraft’ paper which is why it looks so soft. Ed
