horse and i

I was in a sketching mood last night, but didn’t quite know what I wanted to sketch. I switched my itunes to shuffle and began looking around my room for inspiration. I was listening to Horse and I by Bat For Lashes when I spotted my RUSSH 2009 calendar. The accompanying photo for June was a girl with a horse. I took it as a sign. I’m pretty sure the horse is all out of proportion, but whatever, it was only a quick sketch. I’m not sure whether I want to keep working on it and add shading or to just leave it as is. And below is the result of me playing around in Photoshop (oh hi, clone stamp tool). I thought she deserved a lovely floral dress.

    Oh I love this! Just a little detail, but you've done the bridle and all its buckles really well. Cute floral print too.
