For the next 12 days starting on Christmas Day and ending on January 5th (the traditional “12 Days Of Christmas”) I will be featuring 12 equine artists. Over 80 artists entered in the contest to be featured on our Facebook group Art Of The Horse (which has over 3,400 members!). I used this handy tool to randomly pick 12 of the entrants to be featured on TFS. And to start us off is Bonny Snowdon with her realistic equine portraits!
Location: North Yorkshire, England
I’ve been drawing again since March, my daughter bought me a coloring book for Christmas last year and I just loved it! I hadn’t done any drawing since the late 80’s when I was at art college so it was a bit of a surprise when I realized people really liked my drawings. I’ve had such a lovely response and a huge amount of commission requests. This is absolutely something I want to do. I have had horses all my life and sold my horse of a lifetime in July 2016, drawing and painting horses is the next best thing.
