You may remember that my online friend Anoeschka asked me to draw her and her horse Ullah. To get into things, especially the horse daunted me, I did some try out sketches of both of them separately. You can see the sketches of Anoeschka here and those of Ullah here.
But sooner or later I would of course have to leave my sketchbook and do the actual assignment. I took a watercolour book and sketched the both of them in pencil (I didn't take a picture of that) and then outlined them with a brush marker. Then the picture looked like this.
I have to admit I was quite pleased with it. It's not a very elaborate drawing, but I don't think it needs to be. Getting lost in too much detail is not my thing anyway and I really admire people who can draw meticulously.
I decided to colour the drawing in with watercolour paint. I also decided to add some lettering on the left side and a very simple background. The end result can be seen in the following pictures, with some detail shots as well.
Anoeschka has seen the picture, but not the original yet which I still have to send to her. But she seemed very pleased with the result and that in turn of course makes me happy.
I found this request quite challenging, but I'm glad I went and did it. It taught me again I can do more than I sometimes think and that's it's good to stretch your comfort zone a little. I hope you enjoyed following the process and that you like how it turned out.
Wishing you all a wonderful and artsy week!
