Laureus signed, new equine drawing


"Laureus"

What great company he was, alert, attentive, kind and oh so handsome.
Here's the finished result of another good week's work.
I wanted a three D effect.
In order to achieve this I pushed the contrast in the neck and accentuated the detail on the nose . I also used a large format so when the portrait is seen "live", Laureus really comes into the room.

There will be a little canine study next. Running off up to the studio to finish him.
Have a great Monday.
