From childhood I have always enjoyed drawing using pencils and for this subject: a pencil portrait of a black horse, pencil seemed to be most appropriate.  Black and white artworks are striking and I do enjoy working with black and white mediums: chalk, charcoal, pastels.

Bug, also known as Kindersong, is a warmblood horse, and he 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 hotbloods as Thoroughbreds and Arabians.  Warmbloods are capable of being all-round horses, and excel in dressage, eventing and show jumping.
