and surprise surprise I had some small pieces of sketching paper with me. We were due to be giving a harnessing demonstration so I couldn't really walk off around the Arlington grounds, and so decided to sketch something nearby.
It happened to be a heron.
Not a real one, the heron I'm on about is
on the clock tower above the stables
I did a quick pencil sketch
(I got some strange looks when I took this photo)!
and I then had time to ink it in
when I got home I coloured it
This heron statue is also seen around the estate on various gateways
so I think I will be tracking them down
for another sketch one day
