At the Ready

" At the Ready"  Colored Pencil Drawing on White Paper   3.5" x 5"

I like to use shapes of the underlying musculature of the horse to show the implied edge of the subject floating in negative space.  This allows the eye of the viewer to complete the picture and become an active participant. The simple beauty of a horse head silhoutte captures the regal bearing of this powerful creature.  This design appears to me that this horse is 'at the ready' every watchful and just a slight tilt of the head, a flick of the ear, flaring of the nostrils is all that is necessary to convey the emotions.  the image at the right was finished in Paint Shop Pro with a black flood filled border and a picture frame added. ~Maleko
