Arabian Filly at a Trot, charcoal equine drawing by Carol Engles

16 x 20 charcoal drawing on paper. In this drawing I tried to capture the elegance of an Arabian filly. I drew her with her hind leg lifted highly at her hock, her tail carried up and her back flat. And, of course, her face dished,  typical of an Arabian, one of my favorite breeds. Even though I do these drawings in an abstract style, I like to keep the basic traits of the different breeds in my artwork. So, I guess you could say that they aren't totally abstract.
