A Portrait of Hugo
I can’t believe we’ve only been in our new house for less than two weeks!? We already feel lovely and settled, and Pablo loves having more space and a garden to explore. The Christmas tree is up and we’ll be lighting our fire this week - a wonderful way to end a busy year!
Although moving house and Christmas have kept me busy throughout December, I’ve managed to find time to complete a few pet portraits in time for the festive season, and I wanted to share one with you here.
This is a graphite sketch of Hugo, a huge boy from our livery with a small white moustache. He belongs to my friend Wendy and I’ve ridden him many times - he’s round, sturdy and gentle, but he can move into a surprisingly fast canter if he’s given the space!
I loved drawing Hugo. He’s such a handsome boy with a truly gentle soul, and I was particularly excited to capture his moustache and droopy bottom lip.
