Drawing a Horse and Sleigh - Outline Drawing

Today I was looking through some photographs I had taken at the All About Horses Show in Lindsay earlier in the year of various carriages and sleighs as well as pictures of draft horses.

Working from various photographs I made a rough sketch of a draft horse pulling a sleigh. I put blocked in some of the harness on the horse and set the shafts of the sleigh into the harness loops.

More details were details were added to the sleigh, the people were given a little more shape and the lap robe was given a little more definition.

The shape of the horse was tightened up; reins and blinkers were added on the bridle and sleigh bells were indicated on the harness.

I will post this drawing as more work on it has been completed.

Thank you for coming to look at my artwork and I hope you will return often.
