423. Horse

December 1, 2010

November 2010, graphite pencil on paper.

A bit sketchy and not 100% happy with the proportions, but it’s the first drawing I’ve done in a while.

319. Trotting Horse On Red Paper

February 23, 2009

20081230-scanart-flokot-15Felt tip marker on paper, 2008.

I was spending an evening just practising quick sketching and – as usual – the horse theme happened. I was trying to do something different from my usual attempts at remotely reaslistic Arabian Horse faces… I like the freedom and simplicity of line sketches made using humble children’s felt tip markers.

302. Arabian Yearling Colt

November 19, 2008

20081102-artfolioflokot-11

2007, oil pastel on canvas. Re-edit November 2008.

This sketch is inspired by one of the pure Arabian yearlings that once stayed with us for a gloriously horsey 6 months back in 2000-2001. The colt, a straight Egyptian Arabian, was wonderfully mischievious and a beautiful chestnut colouring. He also liked to bite but thankfully, I managed to avoid being bitten.

Quarab Horses

November 10, 2008

Regularly reading Australian Arabian Horse magazines, I kept coming across Quarab horses. While I guessed that it probably meant an Arab Horse with Quarter Horse blood, I figured I’d better investigate further.

Basically, the Quarter Horse x Arabian is called a Quarab. There is a breed registry for these horses in the USA, the International Quarab Horse Association.

Some useful links (with photos):

They look like beautiful horses, some more Quarter Horse type, others with the distinctive Arabian conformation often coupled with striking colour markings.

294. Not Perfectly Proportioned Mare Sketch

October 1, 2008

Pencil on paper, April 2008.

Can’t quite work out what went wrong here, but I’d say at a guess that her nose is too short. Inspired by Arabian Horses but once again failing to capture the essence of their beauty!

Horsey! Undoubtedly it is a poorly proportioned beast – I had deliberately styilised this one. It was a quick sketch.

248. Stallion

Pencil on paper, May 2008.

Inspired by an Arabian stallion. I love the unique shapes and forms of the Arabian Horse, especially those with high amounts of Egyptian in their ancestries. They are amazingly beautiful and I’m not sure that my art will ever do them justice.

245. Lunny

May 23, 2008

Pencil and permanent marker (Sharpie) on paper, May 2008.

A companion to “Honey.”

After drawing “Honey,” the red / pink horse requested by my 3-year-old, my 5-year-old then reminded me that he would like a brown horse of his own called “Lunny.” I think he just wanted a name that rhymed with Honey, and took ‘Lenny’ but altered it. So he requested that I draw a representation of Lunny, pointing out a horse in an Arabian Horse breeders’ magazine.

244. Honey

Pencil and permanent marker (Sharpie) on paper, May 2008.

A companion to “Lunny.”

My 3-year-old is adamant that I am about to buy a horse that she has named Honey. While this is not true, she has decided that Honey will be a pink / red horse, a girl, a pretty horse, and able to talk. Apparently she will live in our rented suburban backyard. Oh, if only I could tell my children that they will get a horse, but I’ve been asking for one since I was 3 as well, and it still hasn’t happened yet!

The dream would be to get maybe an Arabian, Anglo-Arabian, Quarter Horse x Thoroughbred or maybe an Australian Stock Horse. Or a miniature. Or maybe a donkey…

I drew this one at my daughter’s request.
