Here is the latest graphite pencil drawing created from a photo taken by my cousin Claire in West Virginia. Claire and her husband Steve visit some of the many beautiful horse farms when they have open tours, also she knows what a horse nut I am so she sent me a few photos. This one was just too great to pass up. I took the horse, Steve and fence from the photo then crated the background of the wood fence, tree and clouds, very happy with the end result.
Before sending the original to my cousins, I brought this drawing to my San Fernando Valley Art Club meeting for our Monthly Mini-Show for members on April 5th, very surprised to receive First Place! Thank you all who voted for “Horse Whisperer”, I am very appreciative as since my mom passed in July this was the first art work I’ve created, back in the saddle again!
