My Journal!

I got an excellent suggestion to do a journal on here and so I think I shall. I haven't posted anything lately because I have been working on a commissioned piece and I got permission from her to post the drawing I did. I think it turned out well! I see little things I need to touch up but overall - here it is..I will add more drawings to this as I do them!

Wow! the young lady came out really well. I especially like her eyes.
The horse is very good too. Especially his eyes and ears and mane.

THANK YOU! I thought about continuing on and adding a little more detail work and then I thought to myself no - stop. I am going to do a little blending to make some details not so harsh and then just quit. It's hard but I think right now is pretty much where it needs to be. Besides - the person who commissioned it really seems to like it and that's what counts.

Thank You PintoTess! I really appreciate it. The next one I am working on is not horse related but I figured I needed practice with both portraits AND with color so I am doing an oil pastel of my son. It is a work in progress and has a long ways to go but this is where I am at right now..

Thank you! I will post the piece once its finished and then I think, since I am getting the hang of doing color work, I think I will be doing an oil pastel horse. Stay tuned!

Thank you!! I finished it and gave it to my mother in law and she loved it. So I consider that a success. On to the next challenge!
