Yeah, wish they were closer so I could see better. BUT, those are nice shots. I tried painting the other day and did not have the right Juju. Everthing I did was garbage and went there. Some days just aren't right. Will try again later.
Thanks for sharing.

some recent work. . . Blah!

Spent three hours last night and came up with NOTHING that excites me. I am really in a dry spot lately with sumi ink. I cannot seem to recapture the loose feeling that I had.

These are all (but one) inspired from photos taken from this thread:
Beauty in the wild mustangs

The last one above was of these two horses holding what looked like quite the conversation

I love these! I'm really impressed with out fluid they are!

Fluid is right. The sumi/rice paper ones are so difficult becuase it's very hard to control the flor of the ink. The rice paper absorbs it instantly. So, if you hesitate, and hold the brush still for a sec, you get a blob. Very hard to make points, like for ears, since the ink wicks out evenly in all directions. So, one cannot really get detail, only "impressions". I rely on the view, who knows what a horse's eye really looks like, to fill in the detail with their mind.

Yeah - and the planning you have to do before any stroke is made. You can't go back in and put in highlights.
