After doing a ton of super realistic portraits where I tried so hard to be careful, I wanted to go back and do some work where I am NOT being careful but am working to get the "essense" of the feeling, over the accuracy. I use Sumi ink that I grind from a block and add water, and use very fragile Japanese calligraphy paper. It absorbs the ink very quickly , so one cannot linger with the brush in one spot while they think or look at the model/photo for accuracy. You just have to put the brush to the paper and GO! And try to capture the essence of the movement.
I did some from pictures that I pulled off of this forum
(atttn Dressage Belle , New Image, Equiniphile, Klassic Superstar) and did some just out of my head. I will post just a few here because it takes up too much room. If you want to see the whole set, go to:

If you want to buy one, PM me. I can finish it on good paper (adhearing it to a stronger paper) and maybe use some interesting accents. We'll talk.
Ok, here we go . . . .
