It was so great to be back at the Royal Agricultural Winter Fair again this year. I attended on Thursday November 7, 2019 and was fortunate to return again on the last day November 10.
|There are always LOTS of sketchers at the Royal Agricultural Winter Fair|
|It takes a LOT of work to get the Belgians and Clydesdales ready for their show classes. It is so fun to watch|
|I wanted to capture the love I saw expressed between the animals and their handlers|

There is something I find so joyful about locating myself in close proximity to these animals and sitting quietly to sketch them.
|Mutual curiosity and attention|
They have already announce the dates for next year and I plan to spend as many days as I can sketching at "the Royal" in 2020. Please join me if you can!
