Black stallion pencil portrait finished.

Approved, sprayed and signed!

Graphite on Paper, 18x23 cm
Copyright Sheona Hamilton-Grant

Charisma is finished and being framed ready to make tracks to his forever home in Germany.
He was a gorgeous subject to draw: athletic, fit, alert, dark and handsome...
The angle of the reference was not ideal with quite a bit of foreshortening and distortion. (Since the last post I corrected the right ear, the nose and the right eye...!)
This however was a good challenge: the type you need to keep artistically &"graphitely" fit.

On the drawing board this week is a combination of both figurative and canine art.
Nothing definitive has made it yet on paper ...ideas are still spinning in my mind and being sketched out.
I will post when the pencil marks start to make harmonious sense.
Until then, wishing you all a super start to the week.:)

Thank you all - much appreciated:)
Miss seeing the power and skill of these athletes. They are one of the reasons I picked up a pencil all those years ago.:)
Looks wonderful, great finished picture.
