Horsemotions I, 14" X 7", Sanguine dust/carbon,graphite pencils, 2009

carbon pencil goauche graphite horsemotions horses sanguine dust sepia dust

I have sketched so many horses in the past and I love their movement, form and just the smell of being around these fun living things. The sounds they make and the way they are never stable but keep moving.

So this is the first of a series of drawings and paintings on horses called "Horsemotions". It will feature the character, movement, and general well being of these fantastic creatures.

I have done this one by ghosting the sepia dust to form the background, then I have sketched and shaded with graphite, carbon pencils and added a little white gouache for highlights I couldn't get with my putty rubber.
