Sketch in the pupil and eyelashes, with your strokes going in the same direction as the hairs grow. The eye reflects many details and light at close range, so in photographs it is entirely possible to
see yourself holding the camera reflected back at you. Remove these distractions when drawing the eye. The wrinkles and size and shape of the eyelid crease vary widely from horse to horse,
and from breed to breed. It is important to study different horses
and observe the differences, so you are better able to accurately portray the shape and structure of each horse’s individual eye and
expression. Note that there is much more detail in this sketch than would be in a finished drawing, because this is extremely close up.
