OMG - I'm sooo jealous! I could only WISH to have the talent you have! Those are amazing! And I love the expression on both horses.

Horses are God's apology for men.

Thank you, Dreamer! :) I loved drawing both of these boys; they have such wonderful, intelligent expressions. I really enjoy trying to capture that special spark!

Here is the finished version of Nyls du Terroir - next commission I get, I'm buying a scanner!

O wow-you're latest is by far my favorite. I usually cringe when doing drawings with the head from that angle but I love how you cropped it.
You're quickly becoming a pro with oils! I still haven't tackled them yet. I went through a period of about a month and a half or so where I had no desire to draw anything. But a friend asked me last week he could buy one of my pieces as an anniversary gift for his mother. That got me going again. Nothing like good motivation =)

Thanks! :) I never thought I'd enjoy the oils as much as I am now. I think I'm thoroughly converted!
I hate those, uhm, shall we call them...'dry spells!' I've managed to stay on a roll pretty consistently lately - I'm working on an action shot (with the oils - very challenging!) of Peter Atkins and Henry Jota Hampton for a COTH project - we're making 'Run Henny Run' shirts! :) I'll post my progress on that in a little while.

My price list can be found on my site - please excuse the general crappiness of the site and the out-of-date gallery - I'm working on getting it on track! :)
