Week ending with a finished drawing.

The week has ended quite ok despite a terrible start. Finished my first study of Gladiator.
I fell in love with Gladiator the moment I set eyes on him.  
He is a giant of a stallion with charisma and a heart to match. 
Three words to describe him: big, bold and incredibly beautiful.
"Goodwill and Harmony" is the title I opted for (after much debating). Why? On the day of the shoot, there was a real sense of serenity, trust and confidence. This guy is big: I mean gigantically big but showed only calmness and kindness.
I am soooo happy to have a few more references I can use to show the world a great equine specimen.
Any hoo that's all for now, new exhibition to get ready for.

Cheers for now.

First of all, I am sorry to hear about Tom in the last post. You have captured his memory beautifully in your drawing.

Secondly, I really like how in the drawing of Tom as well as this horse drawing you've created compositions focusing on the animal while including the human connection. Very nicely done.
