New Here But a Few Drawings: Please Be Gentle

OK, I used to draw when I was younger but kids & work interfered with my time, energy, and emotions... I need passion to draw. Recently, and at the age of 40+ I started drawing again. I saw drawings on here and thought I would take a picture of one drawing I am almost finished with and one I am just starting... for your opinions. I have horses and am beginning to discover passionate emotion again.

There are so many great artists on this forum that I am humbled (and a little worried about showing my work).

[IMG]file:///E:/DCIM/100K7300/100_0766.JPG[/IMG]I am sorry: I am new to this forum and did not know how to upload a photo here so I included a link to my blog with the pictures of my drawings there. Thanks for looking and giving me any pointers or opinions.

Here is the link if you all want to see!


Thanks everyone.

Those are amazing! I really like your technique too. It's realistic, but still very unique, I really like it!

Thanks for the positive feedback. I used to use chalk pastels (in high school), then went to pen & ink but only black & white, I have branched out now to colored pencil, photo pencils, pen & ink combo. Kind of taking a risk but it has been fun exploring.

Thanks again & I will keep working.

Thanks. It helps to hear what other people I do not know think. It is one thing to have family look at you artwork, and another to hear from non-related people. I appreciate the comments. I will post again when I have some more work finished.

Wow they are really good! Nice work. I am in agreement with the others. You have a different but very cool style! Keep up the good work.

Thanks and welcome. I have not been posting here long either. So, you must have a horse, or horses? Or, you must ride or like horses?

I just finished the first drawing and think I will work on the second one today. There is an image in my head I would like to capture.....

I just uploaded a video of our young mare being ridden in training if you want to see one of my horses.

iGoogle

Anyway, Hello!
