Mini progress steps in new equine portrait




Marble Arch now has slightly more defined face, a soupcon of an ear and a sprinkling of a mouth.



The progress is slow (laying all of the blame at summers door...) but quite good.
A 2B Derwent pencil has been used with various strokes: some harder some softer but all short and crisp.
Slowly approaching the problem area: his roman nose.
The good news: still love greys!
