Charcoal Horse Drawings – Charcoal Portraits from Photos
If you prefer a black and white drawing to a pastel horse portrait in colour, then charcoal is for you! Charcoal is not easy to work with but I have always loved the good effects I can achieve in the details. I only need about 4 different pencils for a charcoal drawing and I am able to capture your horse’s or pony’s essence and personality as well as all of the fine detail – even if the drawing is only small, such as the full-body portrait of grey mare Pacha or the one of the rider on a Polo Pony (see below). Both are on A4 paper.
On this page, there are a few examples of the horse portraits in charcoal that I have been commissioned to draw.

I would love to paint or draw your special animal friend for you and capture what is unique about him or her – just contact me anytime. You can connect with me on my website and follow on Pinterest, Facebook, Instagram or Twitter.
