"Snow Sky" in the paddock before winning the Hardwicke Stakes at Ascot
Pencil drawing approx. 5" x 8"
Well the big day has arrived and it seemed only right and proper that my first piece of artwork should be a horse, and in pencil. As a youngster my teachers despaired of me for drawing horses on the covers of all my school books. And, my Mum wasn't overjoyed about the horses that galloped along the wall in the hall either. I wonder if prehistoric men had the same critics :)
I must give thanks to my facebook friend and lover of fine thoroughbreds, Michael Smithson, for allowing me to use his wonderful photos of the handsome Snow Sky to launch my 365 project. I have to say I had forgotten how labour instensive a drawing could be or perhaps I'm just slow.
Thanks for taking the time to look, I'll be back tomorrow...
