Walk Three Hundred and Twelve – Horses and sausages

A gorgeous day of beautiful clouds, blue skies, showers and rainbows. Sandridgebury stables is on the left and the butcher’s is the tiny building on the right. Click on the picture to see a bigger version.

Stables next to the butcher's? So what exactly is in the sausages, hmm? Wonderful painting, Julie. At first it felt Australian, but on closer inspection it's definitely an English scene :-)

Julie I love your buildings, the shadows etc it looks lovely, very rural England but lovely.

I had the same question as Hashi? Great monotone. You must have an extra wide scanner?

Hashi, I hope John the butcher doesn't read your comment! In fact for meat-eaters it's a great little butchers – if you look at the post for October 4th - you're more likely to have that in your sausages.
Penny the light really helped for this one.
Alison it's a normal A4-ish scanner, I just scan in two halves and patch it together in Photoshop.

The colour version looks very realistic - I like both though. Speaking of horses/butchers, I keep passing the local butcher on the way back from the supermarket and felt a bit guilty. So I walked up there and happened to be on the other side of the road and spotted the sign above his shop - Chevaline!
