Quick Sketch Horses

On a gorgeous spring day I glimpsed these horses standing near the road grazing so I pulled over for a quick sketch. Unfortunately I was unable to get in any more, within a few minutes they had grazed their way to a much farther location. I tried to capture the elegant movement of the Pinto's tail swatting flies. A strikingly beautiful horse. The other too.

  1. I adore this sketch. Wonderfully expressive. Great light.Love the way the line of the horse's back is described with negative painting. Love your palette too. You are still my number one favorite sketcher in the whole wide world.

  2. Gee, Thanks! You're sweet to say. I think horses are my all time favorite critter to sketch. Your Granville sketches are great, BTW. http://whidbeyislandsketchers.blogspot.com/2013/04/granville-island-people-and-pigeons.html
