Pencil on ‘parchment’ paper, 89 x 101mm.

Drawn yesterday for my friend Ingunn of Mosjøen, Norway, and for Charles Darwin (though mostly for the former, admittedly); they share a birthday. Pudgy Horse wishes a happy birthday by eating the cake. This sketch also handily becomes another piece for the Year of the Horse.

The plaited mane (because it was a special occasion) was drawn after the historic Lipizzan horses as painted by Johann Georg von Hamilton.
