Last November, the Southwestern/Western Art Forum from WetCanvas held an Art Swap, where pairs of names are drawn and each person must complete a work of art to trade with their partner in the swap. It was the first time I had taken part in this, and I had a lot of fun with it! This is what I drew to send to my partner. In return, I got a very beautiful southwestern landscape painted in oils. 🙂
I knew time would be short for this swap project, so I chose to draw with my quickest medium, charcoal. Ink or graphite would have been too slow, and paint, while fast, still isn’t in my comfort zone. I’d been longing to draw with charcoal anyway.
“Gift Horse” (I just chose this title now.)
-8×10 inches in size.
-Charcoal on watercolor paper. The golden colors of the paint on the horse’s face are drawn with tinted charcoal.
Hope you like it. Thanks for looking! 🙂
