PIctured: Paints left by Freud<br />
<br />
An abandoned drawing of a horse by Lucian Freud together with painting materials he also left behind have sold at auction for £80,000.<br />
 <br />
The celebrated British artist gave up on his study of the horse called Goldie halfway through as he decided he didn't like her personality.<br />
<br />
He left the unfinished work at the Wormwood Scrubs Pony Centre in west London along with his easel, palette and paint brushes. <br />
<br />
At first Sister Mary-Joy Langdon, who runs the centre, had no idea who the artist was and had even offered him advice on painting horses.
