About “I Want Him” Pretty Phone Backgrounds:
Pretty phone backgrounds – horse blue eyes: this horse drawing is special. Jax is my first horse as an adult, and I adore him. He has a heart of gold with a mind to match – and it doesn’t hurt that he’s gorgeous as well!
We’ve had our challenges over the last couple of years after discovering that Jax has a muscle disorder – I drew this just before getting his diagnosis, at a time when our future was uncertain.
The main focus of this horse face drawing is the captivating detail around his right eye. Those deep, soulful blue eyes that hide pain on the bad days, but show such life and vitality on the good days.
As his rehab progresses, the real-life version is starting to more frequently match the inquisitive version forever preserved in this drawing.
A Moment in Time – Why This Drawing is Special:
Backstory: in my early 30’s, I went looking for my first adult horse. A friend tipped me off to a boarding facility with several horses for sell, and I went with a plan – broke, sane, and experienced.
Looking at the “broke” horses, I couldn’t find what I wanted. As I walked away I turned back, and there he was: this stunning, 4 year old buckskin – staring at me as I walked away.
I kept walking, but talked with the barn owner and asked him some questions about him. “Jax” was more expensive than the broke horses because of his breeding. How could I spend extra money on a horse with no training??
I went back to look them all over one more time, and all the horses split in different directions, avoiding me completely – except him. He thought about running since the others did, but stopped and looked back, coming right back to me. Before I could get out of the field, I was telling the barn owner “I want him.”
How This Horse Drawing Was Created:
I love colored pencil drawings of animals, especially horses; so they’re my favored subject for my art. Coupled with my love of this particular horse, he’s showed up in quite a few of my artworks!, with this one being one of my favorites!
The original horse drawing is graphite, and the dichromatic (2 color) finish was added post-production by both colored pencil and computer.
The downloadable version of this artwork is a 5″x7″ printable, and fits into a standard sized 5″x7″ mat and frame.
The image is high quality and suitable as a mobile device or desktop background, for social media, and other electronic uses, but final printed quality of downloadable art depends on your printer. This artwork is also available as:
