Self Restrain II... by anubis Self Restrain II... by anubis
A drawing on the theme of my "Self - Restrain" painting, exploiting the beauty of monochrome imaging...
Sometimes I feel self restrained myself.... and wondering who will win, the restraining hand or the horse....
Tassos

P.S. 1. Check the oil painting version [link]

P.S. 2. Dedicated to the Festival of Sant Joan, Ciutadella of Menorca (Balearic Islands, Spain), that a dear friend loves so much!!!

P.S. 3. In order to remove the ugly watermarks, that are marring the image, I have to make the following declaration... Please read carefully....

Wow! This visualization is perfect! In fact, I am now going to try imagining this every time I feel that I am failing to restrain myself. Such things have worked for me in the past. The mane that goes down the hand's arm is a nice touch, further illustrating that the more thoughtful hand and the brash and willful horse come from the same mind. It is genius simplicity, and beautifully rendered. :heart:

To me, this image is incredibly profound, especially since I visualize the wilder aspect of human nature in the form of a horse. Wow. It is simply haunting.
