Horses Head Study Finished




After approx 25 hours work my first Horse study ''Jo'' is finished, Lots of different textures to control in this drawing but its all a learning curve, lessons learnt here can be used and improved on in later drawings. All comments welcome.

Really nice Grahame, you sure do get a lot of work done. It takes me forever to get one done.

Thank you Judy, I'm in between jobs as they say, so plenty of time to improve the drawing techniques, thanks for your comments as always.

Lovely horse. I really like all of your works!

Thank You Sally

Wow... this is wonderful, Grahame! 25 hours? No wonder you thought I was on steroids! (but your result is in a class by itself, mine a mere experiment in color and paint).

Amazing Grahame!

Hi, My first visit
the word that comes to mind is superb! I was just trying to draw a horse from memory and it is not an easy subject, but you have captured it!
