A house warming present for a friend. Haven't drawn a horse in months, really nice to get back in the saddle again.

Stunning! I love your drawing.

It amazes me that you can get such stunningly fine detail in your graphite work toadflax. It's just beautifull!

That is incredible. It really looks like it could be a black and white photo

So jealous!!! Just out of curiosity, what type of paper do you use? Is rough or smooth like bristol paper. I keep going back and forth between bristol and regular sketch paper.

That is so beautiful. You're one of my idols when it comes to the artists on this forum. My favorite part of your style is how much detail you put into the background. I know I've said that before but it adds so much life to the drawing.
And it really does look like a photo.
Love it!

Hello, midwestgirl, been a while since I've talked with you! Thank you so much, you're a sweetie :D. It's been a while since I tackled a background because I did mostly dog heads all winter. This one went pretty well, I was relieved to find.
I'll have to scan the archives, have you been posting new work?

Liz, my dear, you have no cause to be jealous, you know...but thank you :-).
I use Bristol plate finish, or regret it if I don't. The less tooth the better for me, but once in a while I try to work looser on a more textured paper, only to end up aggravated and annoyed.
How's married life treating you?

Kayty, thank you, that's exactly precisely how I feel about your pastels.
