lovely use of color with no color. Striking, and the two head together is lovely.

I like the contrast of the horses and the bridles.

Thank you! I've been getting a lot of comments on that drawing. Here is a new WIP, colored pencil on charcoal paper.

I've had a few glasses of wine to drink tonight and didn't want to work on commissions anymore, so I thought I'd try out my new charcoal pencils my husband gave me for Christmas. I haven't worked with charcoal in a long time and am not used to such a loose (and messy) medium. I love the softness of charcoal pencils and need to just allow the medium to flow across the paper without getting caught up with fine details. This is a 5 x 7 sketch I did of my friend's horse who sadly passed away this year. It took me about 30-45 minutes to complete. Enjoy!

30 to 45 minutes? Shazam! That's quick. I like it very much and your friend will love it.

Well for a very quick 'sketch' Liz, I think this is one of my favourites! The fur looks so velvety, detail in the ears is fantastic and you did a beautiful job of capturing a far away look in his eye. Lovely lovely lovely!

FINISHED! And I do think this could quite possibly be my best dog portrait. I just love how he looks up against the blue paper. This charcoal paper is really cool because it comes in different colors. The only downside is that the paper is so thin, that the edges curl up , but I don't think that's going to be a problem because "most" people frame the art anyway.

Hi where's his whiskers? Try a lead mechanical pencil for individual hair strokes. He looks very soft but needs to be more hairlike. What do you think. E-mail me and I will send you a couple of the first of the cats I have drawn. Maybe you can pick up some hints. Don't worry about the background. If your subject is outstanding the background doesn't matter.
