Grey as in grey stallion

Sometimes (well actually most of the time!) my mind will ponder and "sit-on" an image, a concept for years, waiting until the time is right.
Nothing different with this drawing. I shot the references back in 2011...

After 5 years of pondering, my pencils have been on active duty for the last 2 weeks, working hard to get this big-new-in-between-commissions-drawing of Cornado NRW (super good German Warmblood show-jumping stallion) out of my head, on and off the board and into the world.

The hard work and the strange facial expressions have paid off!

All of us here in the studio are relaxed and grinning with the sweet sense of a job well done.

Think I'll go and start another one ;)
