Today’s Project – Black Horse in Oil Pencil

Trying to keep up my horse sketching trend. Here is a profile of a dark horse on black charcoal paper. The drawing is in oil pencil/conte. The original is about 9 x 12″ and currently listed on eBay.


About Nancy J. Bailey

Artist, author, bad karaoke singer. Woodsy ragamuffin. Mom of a horse named Clifford who plays fetch and paints with watercolors. He visits libraries and schools with me, to promote literacy and making the world a better place. Yes, he is house trained, no, he doesn't live in my house! I have written three books about Clifford. But my newest book, THE NORTH SIDE OF DOWN, is co-written by my awesome sister Amanda, who has Down syndrome. Her unexpected one-liner wisecracks can always make me laugh. If you make me laugh, you've made my day!
