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!
