Day 31

'Highland'
Charcoal
16.5 x 22"


The Highland in this drawing is another from my Glamis Countryside Fair collection! I'm surprised I spent any time at my stall considering all the reference images I took on the weekend. 
The Highland was on display as part of an education stand which aimed to inform the public about how wonderful Highlands Ponies are, especially in Scotland. There was information on the breed and the history of Highlands. I do have a soft spot for Highlands (and Friesians and Welshies and ... well I haven't met a breed I don't like!). This particular pony had a beautiful dappled coat and this is my first attempt at drawing a dappled. I didn't want to over do it but I did want to give a suggestion of the dapples.
Hope you like it...
