|"Tang Horse" Diana Hand charcoal on paper 2014|
Big thrill when the Secretary of the Society of Equestrian Artists e mailed me to say I had won the drawing prize at the Horse in Art exhibition in the Mall Gallery earlier this month. I am especially pleased because I like this drawing. The idea came from a ceramic horse (Tang era - 618-907 AD) I saw in a museum in Xian, China a year ago. I really like the power and vitality of the horse, and its informality, with the rug slung casually over the saddle.
AND SOMEONE BOUGHT THE DRAWING, WHICH WAS VERY PLEASING
