Inspiration: The Earl of Rone hobby horse

I find this hobby horse costume so inspiring. It is part of the celebrations of 'the Hunting of the Earl of Rone' in Devon. I made my red riding hood and wolf share this costume. The lovely circular decorations on the sides I adapted into trees with a path through to grandma's house and I engineered the wolf's tail to protrude out of the side where smoke would be coming out of the chimney.
It is a busy image in water colour and collage on A1 paper, but it was fun. It also looks a little like a cake with sprinkles which appeals to my daughter and a whirling dervish which appeals to me.
