Big Carriage Horse

This is the finished painting. I quit using the hard pastels and went to very soft ones to punch up the color. I had fun doing this one and let myself take 2 weeks to do it.

This big guy was in Canada when we visited this summer. There were lots of draft horses in the streets, and I can still smell their horsey smell when I look at this.


  1. Jan, this is wonderful. I love the color and gesture. I love horses and can smell him, too!


Positive reinforcements, questions and philosophical musings welcome!
