Quarter Horse At A Gallop, charcoal and pastel equine drawing by Carol Engles

10 x 14 pastel and charcoal on paper. I really like these colors. I am doing several horses with light blue, grey, rust and various light browns. In this piece I tried to depict a Quarter horse with powerful, developed muscles, a shorter head and small, sculpted ears.
