Furioso-North Star Stallion

The Furioso-North Star is a Hungarian breed named after its two foundation sires, North-Star and Furioso. Many thanks to Janina Suuronen for the use fo her fantastic reference photograph.

I had originally planned to add a background, but I found the natural colour of the pastel paper worked well against the horse’s grey colouring and would not pose a risk of being a distraction.
I opted to add clouds of dust to help to convey the sense of movement.
‘Furioso-North Star’ was completed with Faber Castell pastel pencil and Unison soft pastel on Daler Rowney Ingres pastel paper. It measures 16″ x 12″ / 40 x 31cm and was completed in 2016.
