A little friend for lonely horse....


paintist says:

his ears come to my shoulder, about 4'9"...the bird is about the size of a smallish chicken ( it was supposed to be a crow but got bigger!)

They make a great pair! See Mandy, you could make a bird! I bet Swamprose is doing something botanical.

You're very talented, but then, you don't need me to tell you that :D The horse looks like he has just pulled himself up short after seeing something surprising and the bird hasn't quite adjusted himself to the sudden stop. Wondefully alive!

Thanks everyone...I really enjoyed making them....yes Martimus, I think it will be used to grow some sort of ivy over....

Ivy would soften the shape too much, I think, isn't there anything with a little smaller leaf?
It would be a shame to cover up all that detail you've worked in so well.

may be something that can be clipped mid leaf/sprig so you can keep the shape well defined

I'd suggest 'box' it's a excellent hedging plant & ideal for topiary. I'd also suggest (if you can) putting a trough in the horses belly, it'll make the growth easier. The frame'll need strengthening a little too. Your quite arty aren't you - I don't think I could make that, unless you wanted a horse from Chernobyl. I can pencil sketch, but not people - they come out like nuclear reactor engineers too ( the people who produce FLKs (funny looking kids)).

as its quite large I think that I would have to wait more years than I have got left before box would fill his frame, so a light covering of ivy would do it...not too heavy and can withstand a bit of close cropping every now and then....

paintist, the bird is just right. and I am not anywhere near chicken wire, more like in the US for a wedding this evening. and I have somehow lost my fabulous and only formal dress. oh well. maybe I could quickly do something fast and interesting with chicken friend being married is from Devon and I am enjoying the huge and crazed UK contingent immensely.
