Two hours are up and here is the horse! I am not a horse person - raised in the city and rode a tamed horse once for twenty minutes. Can now see that the rear leg must be straightened a bit. Prismacolor pencils on Canson watercolor paper 120 lbs., 9 X 12. Many layers to go. And then have to figure what to do with the background - maybe some trees and bushes there.

Thanks Elain for the images. Loved the tour! By the way, how do you keep up with all those belts, blankets and saddle components? I'm afraid that I would forever fail the test !!!
Enjoy!!!:)

For a non-horse person you've done well. They are not the easiest to draw. The back legs are fine.

I think a roping horse has more gear than other horses.

Looking forward to seeing your progress on this

That's a lively looking horse, Fred. It's got a real trotting feel to it. Personally I'd be tempted not to do too much more with it.

Wonderful work so far on the horse, Fred! You are so brave to attempt him...horses are SO difficult (in my opinion!) I'll be back to see the grand finale! :)

Nice colors on this horse. You are very brave to attempt a horse with gear in colored pencil. I'd get lost in the doo-dads.

A few more hours into the project, layers and layers of pencil and I tired ! Look at the background and you'll agree. Again thanks Elain, though it was a lot of work, it was fun! Enjoy ! :)

A picture is`suppose to be viewed from afar so I have included a photo from about six feet away.

you did pretty good for a 'not a horse person' person, lots of great textures and shaping in there, well done...

Nicely drawn horse, they aren't the easiest of beasts to draw!

Thank everyone for the encouraging words. Tomorrow I will correct both lighter patches on the horse as per suggestion of Robert. Robert, that bothered me too. I finally realized that others looking at my rendition don't have the photo. I think that the horse will look much better without those spots. Thanks

Here's the final addition. Think that it really adds to what I had done (thanks Robert!). Merry Christmas all!
