Horse& head collar new drawing underway

Finally found time to say hi to my drawing board and coax my pencils into a serious work-out. After a week of marketing and organising, I left them lying dormant! Definitely time to shake them back in to action.

Here the first steps in a new piece, non-commissioned and loaded with understated emotion.


Horse & head collar accurately describe the first scribbles done on Mellotex paper. I have used a 2B clutch and a little 6B in the dark areas.
Hoping to get another grand session in tomorrow (after sifting trough some paper work.)

Promise to post the result.

Great start as always Sheona.

Chair is pulled up, who's got the popcorn.

ELisabeth: Thank you next post being worked on ;)

Katherine I'm finding that this drawing is being done in 2B, the intentisit being achieved through the layering. I've only just used an F for the very light areas on the end of the nose.

Dors: Popcorn sounds like a great idea I'm on to it :D
