Arabian Horse fine art print
My Arabian horse fine art print has been a wonderful experience. I wanted my Arabian horse drawing to show all the beautiful details in their dished faces. I feel pretty accomplished with that goal. Despite the drawing only being an 8×10 inch drawing I think it has a pleasing amount of detail. Arabian horses are stunning. Slight delicate faces and long flowing manes. They have a floating gate and are very intelligent and sensitive animals. I wanted something punchy to draw so I decided on this bay Arabian horse.
I hope you all love my Arabian horse fine art print as much as I have enjoyed working on it. Let me know If there are any horse breeds you would like to see.
