My Art

Horse Drawing

I used a different technique when attempting to draw this horse. I think it’s called ‘Cross Hatching’.Ā  It uses fine parallel lines drawn closely together to give shading and texture. I need a little more practice though!

I am a mother of two children, and have had many experiences in my life that I have been through and had to overcome. I feel it would be beneficial (at least to me, and perhaps you) to share my experiences. Iā€™d love to hear your comments and suggestions. x

    The horse is so well done! It’s soft and delicate and your artistry is just beautiful in your drawing of this magnificent creature. Is s/he a friend of yours? Mona

        I’m a native Texan and I’ve been on a horse exactly once in my life. It was much different than I expected. I always wanted to go back, but that hasn’t happened. Anyway, thank God the horse was in control because he and I both knew that I wasn’t! He was gentle is what I remember and he took me straight back to the barn without any effort on my part. I walked a little funny afterwards, too. Anyway, if you ever come to Texas, I’ll make sure that I sign us up. ~ M
