While down in Old Tombstone this last fall I got the opportunity to ride a wagon, pulled by two gentle creatures. They were small draft horse. Stood some 16 hands with very large hooves. One of them was very friendly and I had the pleasure of spending a few moments with him, his head in my chest while I scratched his ears. As always I took a few dozen pictures of the horses as well as the wagon. If you have never been to Tombstone I recommend it. Getting back home with a hundred pictures or more I decided to draw a series of Tombstone using sepia pencils, much like charcoal and fun to work with. Here is one I did of the draft horses. Enjoy, Mac Presently hanging at the Prescott Trap and Skeet club. This original piece is for sale. 9"x12"
Just finished this drawing for a client in Tenn. This is Blue. Cute little guy and fun to draw. I think the best part of drawing pet portraits is the reaction of the owners. I received an e-mail shorty after she received the portrait and the joy it brought her was a reward in it's self. Sometimes I sit and just think about what I am doing, were it will take me and what will be my next drawing. It's moments like this that reminds me of how lucky I am. Doing something that is enjoyable and putting smiles on peoples faces. Leaving something behind that says I was here and did this drawing. Mac
