Today's Project - Tennessee Walker in Oil Pencil

This is Dollar, a TWH. He's a blue roan but looks black. He was commissioned by my friend Dianne. Her house is done in southwestern type colors; sage and rust, so I had fun picking complimentary colors to put in the painting.

Dollar is a lovely horse. He was a sort of rescue; about 100 lbs underweight when Dianne got him. He'd been shown in the south and has scarring from cuts on his hocks like they do to make them pick their feet up higher in the ring. (I can't remember what they call it.) He's living the good life now!

This is oil pencil about 12 x 16".
