I was a little late on the draw this week. The Illustration Friday prompt was “refrain”.
This is what I came up with:
It turns out the word is derived from the latin term meaning, roughly, “to check (hold back) a horse using a bridle.” So that’s what I tried to show. I used a sculpture by Bayre as inspiration.
The picture’s bold but sloppy. The piece would have benefited from a little more deliberate line work and some more detailed coloring that better defined the masses of the horse’s muscles. Well, maybe next time.
For now, enjoy. I hope to get a few more pictures posted before too long … they’re just waiting to see the light of day.
