Detail of mane.

When Mum first saw this on my drawing board it took her awhile to figure out what it is! I hope you can guess quicker than her!

I drew it in graphite on a large A2 piece of paper. I drew on my imagination and refreshed my memory of ear angles and so on from a big book of horse photos. I wanted to do something that focused on the mane and the texture and flow of it. It is still a bit rough and I made a mess of the top left corner. If I finish it off I'll frame it as I have an old frame that fits it perfectly.

I did have a bit of trouble trying to photograph it. Being so big it was hard to keep the light on it even. I'll need to work on my photography skills!
