Horses

Every year I run a competition to win a free pet portrait, and although the majority of entries and all previous year’s winners have been dogs, this year’s winner was a stunning 23 year old horse named Fred. 

Fred’s portrait in progress.


It’s always a treat to paint or draw a horse or pony. I grew up completely obsessed with them, and their grace, strength and beauty was what first inspired me to spend way too much time drawing animals throughout my life!  Here are some of my past horse and pony paintings and drawings.
