Graphite, Pets


Octavian, Horse portrait in graphite on paper, A3.

This handsome chap was an interesting challenge to depict, what with all the various textures of hair, the contrasts and the bridle’s leather and metal work. It’s always fun to try something a bit new, and I’ve not really done that many horses. Whilst this is only a head-shot portrait, it was nonetheless a good one to work on. I think I managed to get a lot of his character brought out in this one as well, which is good.
