Port Orchard, WA
Painting - Graphite/graphite Powder
Freehand sketch of a startled horse stirring up dust. Using graphite and graphite powder together for the first time to get the dusty effect. A study in foreshortening and accuracy.
Arabian horses tend to startle easily, but they also tend to be very responsive in the saddle. At least from my experience. You have to have a good seat or you'll find yourself on the ground.
Original image that I worked from came from a photograph taken by Wojtek, who is known for his Arabian horse photography.
