UNÈE BB, KWPN Hengst v. Gribaldi – Dageraad as pencil drawing on DIN A1 (59cm x 84cm), champion horse of the German Dressage Equipe, rider Jessica von Bredow-Werndl.
Its creation has the following background:
I found that photo on Facebook and was absolutly fascinated the second i saw that horse. That neck and espacially that diagonally sideways perspective hooked me instantly. I was friends with photgrapher Jeannine Sandman of Sandman Photography for some time on Facebook, but this photo blew me away and my first thought was: I need to draw THAT! I went ahead and asked her and was really lucky as she was as excited as i was about that idea.
Said and done, i had the file and therefore the photo and now in only needed some time. And that was the “issue”: Your can’t wait to begin, but time’s missing… It took around three month until i could start, because the order situation was simply great last year but in september or october i finally was able to put my pen to paper. I took some time as it was created “unoffically”. I took so many pictures during the process and send them to Jeannine. Therefore you can follow the “making of” right here.
