Sketch of the Day: Rest and Roll, Royal Horses

The Royal horses catch some rays, enjoying a warm fall morning by standing in the sunlight looking regal, and by pawing, then rolling, in the dust of the Royal Riding Grounds. At Christiansborg Palace, which also houses the Parliament.We just started watching Børgen and are totally hooked.
The Royal horses celebrated today’s warm sunshine by grandly lowering their clean white butts to the dusty ground, rolling around in the most undignified manner, and rising again as horses of a different color: taupe. Happily for the Royal Grooms, they shook themselves clean afterward. Watercolor wash over pencil, Stillman & Birn Alpha Series 8 1/2″ x 11″ Sketchbook.
