I created this piece of art because I got a keyring as a present and it was created with horse hair. So, I wanted to draw a picture to show that I love it and it is very important to me.
My art represents two of my favourite things, I love horses and dragons. The keyring inspired me to make this, it came from Claire Molloy ceramics, and she is Irish and from Kilkenny I love her creations. I can’t wait when we can visit her shop. I love it and it just my imagination running away with me, I like doing things that are different and not ordinary. I love sketching and drawing different things, most girls don’t like dragons, but I do.
I used paper, card, acyrlic paint, markers, pencils and watercolours and a little glue.
I drew the picture first and painted it and coloured in the dragons and Pegasus. I drew the horse on a separate piece of paper looking at the keyring and drew in squiggly lines and then put the water colours like the horse hair and then I cut it out and I stuck it on a little raised piece of card on to the picture I had painted.
I hope you like it.
