This pencil study is my youngest son, Brandon and my Arabian, D´┐ŻArtagnan. Brandon was around 8 and D´┐ŻArtagnan, around 6 ´┐Ż 8 months. It was a great moment I happened to catch on Tom´┐Żs Nikon; the interaction, the genuine kindness and nuzzling was too much for me not to render. Horses actually do a thing some times, where they will take their head and hold you to them, as if hugging you. D´┐ŻArtagnan still does this on a rare occasion when I have the time to just hang around him for no reason, and it is beautiful and a little frightening, at once you can feel the immense strength in his neck ― and the gentleness.
