Drawing Update

Have been spending a bit of time each day on this latest drawing. It's going to take a good number of hours to complete this one, so bit by bit it's starting to take shape. Have spent around 7 hours on this one so far and liking how it's coming out at the moment. Think i will try and spend a bit more time on this tomorrow and get some good progress on the neck and the larger areas where there is less fiddly detail such as tack.

Dressage Horse and Rider

Have finally managed to find some time to start another drawing. Have been so busy with work, college and the horse recently, the art work has been put on the back burner a bit.

I was having a bit of trouble finding some inspiration for my next drawing and having found a great photo on DeviantArt of a dressage horse and rider, i drew up the initial line drawing over the weekend and started this piece last night. It's a graphite drawing on 12" x 9" Fabriano paper. I have spent around 3 hours drawing time on this piece so far, so it is still in the very early stages. I am looking forward to getting further into this drawing and to try and create the sense of elegance and power of the composition.
