I did this originally as a sketch in mid-2002. I love horses dearly and wanted to catch that 'far away' glance they sometimes have. Let me know what you think.

Title: Silver Dream
Medium: 2B pencil & watercolour on artists sketch paper
Size: A3 in width & height

LOL This is a great sketch but it looks more like the "AH! there is the food slave now" look that the horses I worked for always got when I brought around the hay cart.

I hope your going to do something with this sketch. It's really a good begining. With some color, or at least some shading and strengthening of the lines it could be an awesome work.

You've captured that far away look very well :)

This is a lovely freely drawn sketch. Look forward to seeing you do one in colour sometime.

Truth be known, i'm not very confirdent with colour in realism at the moment... i don't post in this forum usually.. do you know of anyone who works in colour when drawing horses... perhaps i could take a look at some of their posts!

Yes, you certainly captured the look you were after, however, after reading the "there is the food slave" comment, I have to say I can see that too! lol. Maybe it's all the same in horse psyche.

:o :rolleyes: :( :eek:
crafty- how on earth did you do it??
i'm in awe.. i'm- well, certainly very envious lol.
i have a set of watercolours which i've been trying to ease into for months now.. but i'm certainly not having any luck with it at all :( watercolour is really so hard.. i don't know the first thing about applications and how wet the brush should be. my paintings usually turn into pages of mud-coloured water :rolleyes:

really, that is brilliant!

Some of our other talented equine artists (beyond those She-She listed) are CrazeeJumper, Wes Hyde (different style), and Ryde2Rope. Hope this helps.

Looks like a great start into horses you have going there.

This one is done in pastel pencils.
I think you have a good start on your horse art, just keep going with it.
