Dressage Horse

As promised, a Horse! Horses were one of my favourite subjects when I was a teenager, drawing for fun, I was a typical horse mad girl, but when I started doing commissions and they were mainly of dogs I got out of the habit of drawing horses. Now I've just learning to ride and have 'discovered' horses again I am planning on getting back into drawing horses this year.

This drawing is for a raffle prize for an information event on 13th March held by the students on the HND Equine Studies course at the local Highland College. The money raised from the raffle will go to Riding for the Disabled and the Laminitis Trust.

Here is the first stage, more updates to follow next week.

Latest Pet Portrait

Here is my latest Pet Portrait commission, a 10" x 12" graphite portrait of a lovely collie named Molly.

Apologies for the quality of the image, it was taken in bad lighting and I'm not intelligent enough to work out how to use imaging software to whiten the backgrounds!

My next project is another Molly, this time a Cavalier Spaniel and a horse portrait. Updates coming soon.
