Horse Breed Project - Jenny Wren, an Appaloosa Shetland Pony

Close-up detail

This is a graphite on 8x10 Multimedia Art Board and was drawn for the WetCanvas Horse Breed A Week Project. The project is now going every two weeks instead of weekly.
Jenny Wren was one of the 4 horses my family kept when I was a kid. She was such a character - part demon, part angel! My sisters and I learned so much about horses from this little brown appy-colored shetland pony! This drawing is not being offered for sale as it is staying in the family.


  1. love the pencil portrait, Jenny Wren looks wonderful

  2. Thankyou very much! It is a bit rough. I'm still pretty rusty at graphite and I was fighting the surface. Won't use the MM board again for graphite.
