Faith Sleeping – Horse Portrait

 A sleeping horse portrait of Faith.

Here is a graphite drawing based upon a photo of Faith, our horse, laying down sleeping.  I tried to work on as much detail as possible to attempt a realistic drawing.  Total render time was about two hours.

I spent most of the time on hair, very tedious amount of work.  If you are in a rush, this is not a drawing for you lol.  I used a technique of layering and blending with a brush and then I would take a kneaded eraser and with a flight of the wrist, pull the highlights out for the reflected light on her hair.

I was so focused on doing the hair that I just couldn’t help myself, but to make it longer.  It’s my drawing and I will draw it the way I want lol.

Anyway, I really hope you enjoy the drawing, please comment below or like and share it on Facebook.


Materials Used

  • Graphite Pencils 2-8B
  • Paint Brush (For blending)
  • Kneaded Eraser for pulling the high lights.
