Grey mare - pastels on velour paper

This is Sulaika, a German mare (Arab X Westphalian). She's in her late 20s and suffers from Cushing's syndrome so her coat is long and shaggy all year round. However, she's doing great and is much loved by her owner. Pastels on velour, A4. My scanner has swallowed her whiskers but they are there (you can just about see them if you look closely).

Cheers Sandra

Very nicely done! I love that it was done in white pastels. Props to you for working with pastels - they aren't my favorite because they're SO messy!

beautiful, I love how 3d and life like you are able to make them! Very nice work. You really have an eye for muscle and bone and draw the hair accordingly. How long does a piece typically take you? And how long have you been doing this?

Thank you guys!

@jwhisperj: Thank you! The time it takes me to complete a piece varies..it depends on the medium, size, pose and also the quality of the reference photo. This one would have taken about 15 hours. I've loved drawing since I was a little kid but I have only been doing this 'seriously' (i.e. Accepting commissions) for about 4 years. It was also 4 years ago that I first picked up a pastel pencil. I also work in charcoal, watercolours, graphite and coloured pencils.

Cheers Sandra

Incredible. You're talented.

It is not enough for a man to know how to ride; he must know how to fall.
