Here is the last horse in the large colored pencil drawing I have been retouching these past few weeks. This was my first horse Tailor and my equine soul mate. I had a particularly hard time with his portrait as it brings back so many raw emotions for me. He always had such a worried look in his eyes and was the most intuative horse I had ever known. He knew when he could get away with being a little **** head and when he needed to take care of me. I miss him so much. I'll get a picture of the whole drawing as soon as the lighting is good enough and I have my husband available to hold the drawing up for me while I snap a picture.

Beautiful artwork! What brand of color pencil do you use I like using color pencil as well. I've never bought nice professional ones before but I would like to but I feel uncertain on what to get.

FINISHED!!! Here is the revised 18 x 24" colored pencil portrait of my 3 former horses, Mr. O'Malley, Roxana and Tailor and the old drawing from a few years ago for comparison. I wish I could scan a drawing this large. I probably took 5 or 6 pictures of this drawing and this was the best I could get. The paper really is white.

Peppy Barrel Racing, I use prismacolor pencils. Most professional artists I talk to use them as well. I've heard derwendt (or however you spell it) pencils are good, but I've never used them. I love my prismacolors. Fairly expensive, but worth it.

Here are the before and after pictures for comparison just to show how my colored pencil drawings have evolved this year. Might just be my new favorite medium. :)

I wish there was a way to cover up that old signature and redo it as my last name has changed since I got married and I'd love to put a new date on it. I tried going over it with a white colored pencil, but had no luck.

Oh that makes sense I have prisma color pastels I just love them. They were expensive but worth every penny.
