abbas

A pencil drawing of a horse wearing a blue halter with a blue lead rope behind a wall. Only the horse's head, shoulder, and neck are drawn.

This horse drawing was submitted by an anonymous horse crazy girl. Besides the well drawn horse I love the horse's mane and the pop of color that comes from the halter and lead rope. Overall, I think the artist did a great job with this drawing.

evan

A digital drawing of a gray horse with a spikey mane and forelock, green eye, and white blaze on its face. Only the horse's head and neck are drawn.

I really like this drawing that Selena submitted. She based the horse, Evan, off of a wrestler that she admires which is very unique and imaginative. Plus all the color that she put into the drawing really makes it come alive.

A digital painting of an Arabian horse. The horse is white with black points. The background is a mixture of blue, maroon, purple, and pink.

This Arabian horse painting was done by Cheyenne. I love all the different and unique colors used in the background of this painting along with the realistic look of the horse. The artist really paid attention to the details when creating this piece.

mare and foal

A painting of a bay mare with a white stripe a light bay foal with a star and snip out in a field. There is green grass on the ground and trees and white fence in the background. The sky is blue.

I love this painting of a mare and her foal. Even though it is a paint by numbers painting it is still well done and you can tell time and effort was put into it.

stunning friesian

A digital painting of a black Friesian horse on the beach. The sky is grey, the water is blue, and the sand is beige. Only the horse's head and neck are drawn.

Titled Stunning Friesian this beautiful piece of artwork comes from Miki. I can't believe how realistic the beach background and the horse both look. The horse is gorgeous and very well drawn especially for being done on a computer.

yawning horse 

A pencil drawing of a horse yawning. The horse's teeth are showing and the horse has a white stripe.  Only the horse's head and neck are drawn.

Keely did a wonderful job capturing the image of her horse yawning in this drawing. It is hard enough to draw a horse standing still, but to be able to draw a horse in motion is that much harder (in my opinion) which makes this drawing that much more impressive.

khalid fire fouad

An animated image of a bay Arabian horse head with  text 'Khalid Fire Fouad' at the top and 'Eternal Fire Heart' at the bottom. There is also the image of a flame in the corner.

This animated drawing of an Arabian horse comes from Zoey. She based the drawing off of her own horse which is super sweet. She did a great job creating a realistic drawing which is even more impressive given the fact it was done on the computer.

horse head drawing

A pencil drawing of a horse's head. The horse appears to be a Friesian. Only the horse's head and neck are drawn.

mysterious

A pencil drawing of a horse's head with the horses mane flowing out towards the side. The horse is a paint horse and the mane has stripes throughout. Only the horse's head and neck are drawn.

Tips for How to Draw a Horse

Almost every horse's coat color begins with one of two base colors - red or black. Such knowledge goes a long way toward creating realistic paintings! - Walter Foster, The Art of Drawing & Painting Horses

Decide where you are going to place the drawing on the paper, and keep the drawing proportion to the size of the sheet. Do not crowd the drawing into one corner of the paper. - Gladys Emerson Cook, You Can Draw Horses

For finished artwork, it's best to use single sheets of drawing paper. Smooth paper provides the ideal surface for detail, allowing for a good amount of control over the strokes. - Walter Foster, Drawing Horses
