Getting started...

Currently on the board: a new drawing.
Pencils have been scribbling dreamingly and slowly on this new piece.
Leaving marks highlighting tenderness, trust and emotion.

Technically I wanted to push myself and work big (57x46 cm).
Emotionally it's all about pulling off combining that very special contact between horse and man.

So far :  one (half-closed) eye and two ears closer to my goal!

I love the plaited forelock, in fact I love it just as it is. Glad you scanned it like that; it's a beautiful fragment.

Thank you EM :D There is something appealing about an unfinished drawing,quite often people will remark that it could just stay like that. The mystery of the unfinished leaves so much to the imagination which is a nice thing too :D

I see complete trust and love in the horse's right eye already.

Reading this means a great deal. Thank you. Been working on this area today trying to inject emotion and feelings into the eye. Nice to hear it might be working :D
