Face To Face With A Dead Horse

Husb and I are spending a few days in The Lake District with family and I have taken a break from drawing.  It’s great scenery around here but I’m not much of a landscape person to be honest, I’d rather draw cityscapes.  I did a lot of drawings last weekend at Gellionen Chapel’s Mari Lwyd event, here’s a close up of the Mari’s head. Quite gruesome I suppose if you’re not used to the tradition,  but the Mari Lwyd is really funny in ‘person’.

    wow, these are really powerful drawings Rosie, they really bring out the scary side of the Mari Lwyd! I love they way the look so alive but are also grinning skulls – yikes1

      Thanks Phil. The Mari looks terrifying but is actually a very mischievous entity and a great laugh to have around 😀
