I've been working on a dog painting and needed to get back to horses, so I sketched out this horse with my crayola pencils (didn't want to waste the prismacolors). It's 5 x 7 inches. I tried a new technique where I filled in the backrgound with a sharpie pen and then went back over it with colored pencil. It's something someone suggested to me when I mentioned having a hard time doing backgrounds. Kind of a cool technique.

You do great work. I love the way color pencils and ink together. It takes a lot of patience to work in that media.

Would that be Roscoe?

Both are just lovely, Liz! I should start with some colour - when I get some frigging time to experiment!
Question: what is the difference from a 'mechanical pencil' to graphite ones? (See how untrained I am!!)

As a matter of fact it is Roscoe! How did you know? I am a member of an equine artist group on facebook and we all picked one picture to draw/paint/sculpt from. Someone posted a picture of a horse named Roscoe (can't remember who posted it). This was my rendition of him. Are you in that group as well?

That reminds me, I've been meaning to get a similar project going in this group, but have been so flippin busy.

I'm a member of that same group; just saw your post there. That project is a really novel idea. Just need to get off my butt and work on my entry...

And if I may --

Mechanical pencils are the "pump lead" ones, usually made of plastic. Most of them are #2/HB, but I'm seeing the other lead weights put into mechanical pencils, too. They're just not the traditional wood, "sharpen me up" pencils!
