Valeroso Three, equine ink drawing by Carol Engles

14 x 16 ink on paper. This drawing was inspired by our Peruvian stallion, Valeroso. I have done several drawings inspired by Val. He's so animated! These are difficult for me to do! Gestural drawings are supposed to be simple with just enough line to capture the subject and movement. It is very easy to add too much line and then you lose the quality of the gesture. Hope you like this. Let me know what you think.

I think you used just the right amount of line and detail and really nailed the pose and energy! Love it!

Thank you Theresa! You're so kind! I admire your work so much - your comments are always appreciated

Thank you, Sadeu! I owe my inspiration to my stallion, Valeroso! He's so animated!
