Cantering Horse, by Rilla

April 29, 2013 @ 5:18 pm | Filed under: , ,


Companion to last month’s Galloping Horse. She’s still working hard on getting those legs just so, as you see. I’m loving this chance to watch a young artist hone her skills. She’s made big strides (so to speak) already.

I believe next up is Trotting Horse. All three are from the horse page in the Usborne Book of Drawing.

    This reminds me of the Horse that is in the land in chalk in the Tiffany Aching Pratchett books…

    What a wonderful drawing – so realistic. I can almost hear it canter.

    We enjoy that drawing book here too 🙂

    Great job, Rilla! Horses are the hardest things to draw, in my opinion, and yours is fantastic!

    oh I was hoping we’d get to see this! Very good, you can tell it’s cantering and not, for example, galloping – it seems counter-intuitive to draw the front legs sticking out like that but that is how they go in the canter!
