This week's Showcase Saturday piece is back to my favourite subject - horses. This particular drawing was part of my GCSE Art coursework, which means I drew it about six years ago. Where has that time gone?!
It was actually inspired by the work of another artist, but without my sketchbook I can't remember who. It was drawn using coloured pencil on paper, with the bottom half being a layer of brown sugar paper - hence the wavy line through the middle!
There are definitely a few bits out of proportion, but I love the warm colours of this piece and the dark outlines. I remember drawing a lot of this using the school pencils rather than my own, and it being quite difficult to blend the colours quite how I wanted.
The rough background and dark outlines were inspired by the other artist and it's actually an effect I like- strong but without distracting from the main structure.
I've been getting such good feedback on this series so far and I still have a few more pictures in store so make sure you're back next week for another!
