The Dark Horse Unfettered / charcoal and chalk

I set him free with the magic of art.

It’s funny the things you learn when doing art. Shelby showed my photos of this horse to a friend of hers who knows horses. That lady said this horse is being trained for Dressage. It’s a practice not used much these days because it hurts the horse. The head is seen as most beautiful at a certain angle. It causes the horse to be tense and other skeletal parts get misaligned. So now the standards are for the more natural position on the head. She also said this model is out of proportion.

I’m planning on trying another color theory experiment for my next painting using this horse as a subject.
