Drawing Horses from Life - Blue
Blue is a bearded lady with the most gorgeous blue eyes and a gentle nature. A grey Clydesdale 22 years old and she has had a hard life towing wagons and carts all round the South Island.
She is retired now and is one of my favourite things in all the world. She's a bit shy with me but she doesn't mind me drawing her.
The above drawing is a good likeness and I am very pleased with it and will make it into a print, maybe a softground etching but we will see what we will see when the time comes.
I've put aside two months, from mid November to mid January for to create a series of prints of Horses and other creatures.
