Legacy - New graphite equine drawing.

He's magnificent.
He's striking.
He had to be drawn.
Had to get the pencils to "comb" through the tick wavy mane and tail. Render the muscles, the faint traces of sweat...

The reference for this new piece was kindly provided by friend and photographer extraordinaire Juliet Harrison. (If you are seeking for inspiration trundle over to her website Juliet Harrison Photography ... a must!)

This is a large piece, completed over the summer months, in between servings of ice cream, visits to France and tin men on stilts.
A labour of love, an indispensable support maintaining an all important stability and sanity during the happy chaotic summer months.

The result is powerful, strong and full of movement.
Just right ...
