Red Horse Grazing



Oil, Red Horse Grazing. based on photo I took of neighbor's horse.  One of the handful of hundred's of shots take over many early morning or late afternoon visits to the fields reached by trekking across our creek and through the woods.  The owner says I caught her shape and neckline perfectly.  All I know is all the practice drawing portraiture makes it easy to draw a horse, photo in one hand, and sketching with the other.  Started doing initial sketching with a pastel pencil and finding it works well, no smudging when painted over, unlike graphite pencil.
