The theme this week for the 52 Week Illustration Challenge was horse. I love horses, always have. I had the privelege of owning one for a short while when I was a teenager. Every girls dream. I have continued my love affair with horses even though I no longer have contact with them.
The horse is such a recognisable image and evokes such strong emotions in so many people. Their majesty and strength shine through. This makes them a challenge to draw.
As in past weeks I have tried a few different approaches to drawing my horses. I started by drawing 5 pages of realistic sketches in my sketchbook. I have included just a couple of those images.
I think tried something more fun and whimsical on the horse theme. This was done in watercolour in my handmade sketchbook.
I also had a play with this fun digital painting done in Photoshop.
This line drawing was completed in Illustrator. I think it turned out really well.
As usual time was limited this week or I would have loved to devote more time to this wonderful theme.
