The World’s Best Model



Sketching Woodrow in Humboldt Redwoods State Park

Do you see the green/blue behind the horse’s tail?  That’s the swimming hole by our campsite that we frequented each afternoon and had practically to ourselves.  One day we heard a ninnying and found this beautiful Arabian there in the shade, his human family in the shade below.  Excited, I got my chair and sat in front of him, Woodrow the horse that is, and commenced to sketching.

Well, I’ve sketched chickens and goats and sheep and cows and dogs and cats, all of which resulted in quick sketching, as in glance/memorize/hope for the best.  This noble creature almost stood still for me.  And can you imagine a more perfect subject for sketching?



  1. I blog frequently and I genuinely appreciate your content.
    This great article has really peaked my interest.
    I’m going to book mark your blog and keep checking for new information about once per week. I subscribed to your Feed too.


  2. I look your nature and horse watercolor sketches. They remind me of when I first found your work online and thought: “I want to be able to do that!” That was years ago and I still follow your work.

    The horse is delightful.
