Elemental Horse: Ligno (wood)

Personal Work

Last year I was commissioned to do a series of Elemental Horses based on the four classical Greek elements. Ignis (fire), Aura (air), Aqua (water), and Terra (earth). They were themselves done in the style of my Planet Horses (Jupiter, Saturn, Ouranos and Neptune) from 2013. This year, I’m revisiting both series, beginning with the addition of the two missing classical Chinese elements (wood and metal).

Ligno (wood), is draws inspiration from the Gypsy Vanner for her shape, and on the Giant Sequoia, manzanita and scrub oak for her arboreal parts. Despite being tedious and time-consuming, and it was a fun challenge doing all the leaves, and I’ve learned a lot from it.

Mixed media: black ink and watercolor, colored pencil, and gold paint pen. I created her sigil (at bottom right) to resemble a tree with roots and branches. Original will be for sale at Further Confusion later this month.
