Special thanks to Jayne Carne for letting me paint her horses.
Today’s sketch is of a Miniature Pony and her three day old Foal. My son’s partner’s mum breeds miniature ponies and I was very lucky to visit just a few days after the foal had been born. She is so cute and is now much less timid than she was in this picture.
I spent a long time on getting the drawing right on this sketch as I always find horses quite challenging. I worked out where I wanted the picture to be on the paper and then drew in the negative spaces between and around the horses rather than drawing the horses themselves as that always makes drawing complicated shapes easier.
Happy painting everyone and please remember if you enjoyed this video to “like”, “share” and “subscribe” if you would like to see more of my videos. New videos every Sunday at 1530BST.
