Horse Drawing in White Charcoal by Theresa Paden

White Charcoal Horse Drawing
"Her Blue Eye"
By Theresa Paden

12 x 9"
White charcoal on gray Canson paper

 This is my horse, Mountain Music (we call her Music). 
She's a Missouri Fox Trotter with one blue eye and one brown. 
Music has such a smooth gait and is so fun to ride. Having been
abused by a previous owner who would twist her ears, she is 
quite head shy. Because of that, it takes a little more time to bridle 
her, but she is well worth it. She has a favorite place on her 
neck that she loves to have scratched and she makes 
the funniest faces when I scratch her there!


  1. Oh my goodness, Theresa!! I love Music!! She's truly a beautiful horse and such a "special" horse...I would like to meet the person who abused her and I would love to twist his ears!!!!

    1. You're so funny Hilda, you made me laugh out loud! :) Actually, I would like to twist that guy's ears, too!! Some people just don't understand that there are kind ways to train animals.

  2. My Arabian/Quarter Horse cross oddly enough can foxtrot. He doesn't do it often, but it's a wonderful gait.

    1. That's great! I love that feeling . . . it's like floating :)

  3. Music is beautiful Theresa. I love the white charcoal. It gives a beautiful effect.
