evolution of a painting

Here is my latest commissioned portrait. This mare was the "one in a million" horse for the family and the photo with their son was treasured.
Barbie's Goldie and Kyle.jpg

First; rough sketch, but unforturnately, need to change from horizontal orientation to vertical
Baby and horse 002.jpg

Trace image and use to transfer to vertical

Vertical image

Use horizontal image as a "practice" page for painting.

I don't know how you do it time after time. Each one is absolutely perfect. I mean perfect. I would love to know how you do this kind of pin and ink. I know that isnt the right word for it, but its all I can come up with. I would mess it up for sure.

I use Japanese ink blocks and grinding stone and Japanese or Chinese brushes. I work from light to dark and lots of time waiting for it to dry in between.
Slow.

INCREDIBLE. Every time I see a new painting, I feel like jumping out of my skin, I'm so excited!
