View Full Version : Quarterhorse Buddy

Buddy was the horse of a friend. Last summer he passed away :-(
She was so sad and asked me, if I could do her a drawing of her horse.
And now I am finished and she was happy, but also tears have been flowing...
The size of the picture is A4 = lettersize and I made it like always completely
with an 8B pencil.

I wish all of you Merry Christmas,
greetings, Iris

Stunning, beautifully done, and moving. I think the most difficult part of posthumous work is not the rendering but the giving. Tears and kleenix go with the job and the client isn't always the only one crying. You know when they cry you did more than capture an image but you captured heart and soul too. Melanie

That's a beautiful portrait of a lovely horse. You've captured the shine of the coat and the braids in the mane perfectly. I'm not surprised your friend cried ~ it's a gorgeous tribute to what will no doubt have been a much loved companion.

Beautiful job and a handsome horse. That is sad that he is no longer here. I can only imagine how fortunate the owner felt receiving your beautiful piece.

What a wonderful job you did here! It's beautifully rendered, with the sheen on the coat and mane and the wonderfully expressive eyes and nostrils. His coat looks so real, soft and inviting to touch. Well done!
