An Arabian Weekend

I have just got back into drawing horses after a 40 year break!

Seriously – when I was a little girl I use to draw horses freely – on any surface I could find including the papered inside of my mother’s sewing box!

Then I decided that I couln’t draw them “properly” and then left off from my equine efforts.

Here is a horse I painted this weekend. I am just a little bit pleased and am all fired up to paint more Arabs and now I have found the Lusitanos – OH dear – endless hours of fun watching them prancing and powering on You Tube.
