Today's Equine Art - Mare and Foal in Pencil



An intimate moment passes between a mare and her foal. I love the shapes in this drawing. The foal is at its most vulnerable, and only a portion of the mare is shown to illustrate her size in contrast, while she stands over the baby protectively. I tried to show how the light was hitting the foal softly, as it might through a stall window.

This is pencil and conte on grey charcoal paper, about 10 x 13".

Your art makes me want to write more horsey poetry.
