Working with the Queen
I've been doing some studies of Rachel Alexandra
lately. She's an amazing lady. As the 2009 Horse of the Year she has a brilliant career ahead of her. I've been trying to capture how she holds her head aloft and how calm and intelligent her eyes are. She just projects strength and focus.
Sketches are something I do before I start the finished color work that become prints and posters. But, sometimes even a quick sketch can capture the moment. Rachel should be racing again in April. I can't wait.
