Equine Faces and Graphite

Watching the Preakness and sketching a bit. Inspired by the moving horses.

I’m planning on getting back to my knitting soon! Seriously!! LOL


  1. Lovely close-up sketches!

  2. Gosh Vickie, you are really talented. I would love to be able to draw like that! :)

  3. Love your horse drawings.
    Just saw your post at coffee pot people. I have held her link and interest for years, just wanted to comment and saw no way to do so. How did you.
    I see her etsy, but didn't follow it. No about me, either for email. How did you get a comment, do you have to subscribe in order to comment.

    I suppose some don't care if there are comments or not, but usually encouraged??

  4. Excellent! I really must pick up my pencils again.

  5. Cool facts and great drawings. It's hard to draw horses. And I love your knitting Meez avatar! I also used Meez for mine - http://www.beadinggem.com/2007/05/bling-your-avatar.html

  6. Dear Vicki,
    Very lovely and sensitive drawings. Me, too, love horses. But I did not know the legal topic and such short hours they sleep!
    Cheers, Sadami

  7. These are really good, Vicki. Serious.... you did a great job!
