Thanks for the wonderful refs, and hosting, Kat !
The upstanding team of Freisian horses caught my eye for their European style harness. The horses re always black in real life, but for now they're white. :wink2:
Approx 9x12" (23x31 cm) on sketch pad paper, Edding 1800 non-permanent ink pen for the harness, Pentel 05 brown (permanent) for the horses' outline. Used a Japanese water-containing brush to dissolve the non-permanent ink. 1 1/2 hrs total. Kinda looks like an old catalogue picture when Sears used to sell harness lolhttp://www.wetcanvas.com/Community/images/27-Apr-2015/38898-WDE-2015.04.27-harness.jpg

Wow...this is pretty cool and so impressive that you deliberately selected this focus on the harness and successfully kept it attractively highlighted ...love the lines and the crop!

Lauren, beautifully drawn horses. Interesting effect to just paint the harness.

I so knew you'd do this! You aren't always so predictable but this was EASY. And the way you left them WHITE with harness's painted. BRILLIANT as only you could do.
I know pretty much ZERO about horses but you have taught me a lot in this post. Thanks, Lauren!

Oh My, this is wonderful. Such beautiful patient creatures and you have done them proud. Love it.

...super answer to the challenge, and how clever are you noting the style of harness, that passed me by, as did the make of neddies, I love these beautiful critters, and the carriage driver was making them walk backwards and forwards to 'park' it outside the hotel entrance. When I came out to photograph the darling horses, the driver said to them 'heads up lads', and they immediately stood to attention. They were a treat, as is your lovely pic :)
