First drawing in forever!

So I caught the drawing bug again.

Thank you armydogs-the 'skill' comes and goes. If you only saw some of my other pieces...they aren't exactly pretty =)

So, so good. Between you, Liz, and Wess, I'm SO tempted to bite the bullet and try charcoal. It looks so dramatic and lovely - this horse is the perfect subject!!

O you should! Just like the oil pastels, once you start it just gets better and better from there. And like oils, you get your hands absolutely covered in charcoal dust (at least I do )
