More harness!! Help me, Lord!!

Pencil drawing for "American Troika"

Pencil drawing for “American Troika”

I had planned on doing a full size (16″x20″) painting of the Mackinac carriage horses which were featured in my small Aquabord™ watercolor back in December. But the thought of more harness, large-scale at that, pushed the procrastination button. I did have a couple of commissions in the meantime, but I still could have hopped on this drawing a lot sooner! Doing a large version accomplishes one very important thing–it reminds me how much more difficult it is to get all the pesky detail into a large painting than into a small one!
