From childhood I have always enjoyed drawing using pencils and for this subject a pencil portrait seemed to be most appropriate. Horses are magnificent creatures and Bug, a warmblood horse, was an absolute pleasure to portray. Warmbloods are a group of sport horse breeds and the term simply distinguishes this type of horse from the coldbloods and hotbloods. Coldbloods are generally known as heavy or draft horses such as Shire and Suffolk Punch and hot bloods as Thoroughbreds and Arabians.

In the twentieth century, European breeders began refining their horses to produce a sound, large framed, athletic horse with superior movement and a good temperament. Although warmbloods are capable of being all-round horses, they excel in dressage, eventing and show jumping. Portraying Bug, an exceedingly handsome and vibrant horse, was an absolute pleasure and many thanks to Sally, David, Tracey and Bug.
