16×20 Pencil Drawing
I went to Heritage Park in Forest City, IA for their horse and mule show and I knew a couple that owned a team of Percherons. I took several pictures for them but this horse and I had a bond. Her name is Frannie. Once I saw this photo, I thought, I need to draw that. I will find that I could be holding on to an idea or image and it will stay in my head until I put it down on paper or canvas.
I have been painting horses lately but I knew right away that I wanted to do this in pencil. It may be that it was a black horse with a black harness. I feel that I was able to get more detail in the harness with pencil then I would have in paint.
I was told from the owner that Frannie is the more spirited one of the two. Maybe that is why she kept looking for me when I was taking her picture. I wonder how they can tell them apart.
