52Frames Animals Week 48

Dec 4, 2022 | 52Frames, Acrylic paint, Drawing | 0 comments


This weeks challenge set by 52Frames is Animals. I was rather pleased because I have some photos of heavy horses that I have been trying to get into one of the briefs. This week it’s an easy fit!

I saw these horses being readied for the show at Poynton a few years ago. I really like horses, but especially these heavy draft animals. They are so well built and this one had a lovely mottled coat. The man was getting this horse and it’s foal ready with plaited and decorated manes and tails.

I did the piece in acrylic paint and then overworked it in Derwent soft crayon. The horse and man have come out well. The background was trickier, and although I have definitely improved it this morning there are still a couple of areas that are not quite right. However it has the feel of the day with the sun coming from the left.
