Before I could go on to finish that art work, I had to be satisfied there wasn't a copyright on the photograph image. Well, I did find the original owner of the photograph. It was apparently sold, as the website with the very same horses are there now, in many different images of the same pair. Legally, and in good conscience, I can not draw that image as my own.
I scrapped that project. Since it was a friend that wanted me to draw the image, I took the same idea of the nuzzling horse pair, and have made it in my own image. The theme of a nuzzling horse pair will be larger, and stronger built horses I did take a few photo's along the way, but I have restarted this drawing 6 or 7 times now, and the progress is different each time. I'll try to get a photograph in before I complete the work. The current drawing is to my satisfaction, so far. I'm drawing with graphite, but I am thinking of drawing it again in color pencil. This artwork, when complete, I will offer for sale in prints.
I am still working on Angel Love Tree. It's just about done.
I hope you all have a great week-end!
