Another evil horse's spirit, you can call it a scottish kelpie
, a swedish "bäckahäst"
or the french (from the north of France!) "Blanque Jument".
This fabulous creature was supposed to have the annoying habit to drown anyone who wanted to ride it, which was a great temptation when we look at the beauty of the animal.
I was probably and unconsciously inspired by Theodor Kittelsen's piece of art
which nicely depicts that legend.
Maybe an entry for the
contest about a "Hidden in the forest" theme.
Pencil, "black stone" pencil, watercolors and ink on A3 watercolor paper.
