Prismacolor french greys (except for the muzzle), in order to establish the shapes and some of the values. There is much ground to cover yet: for perspective, this horse head is nearly 20 inches high.
With this piece, one of my goals is to retain and lead the viewer's eye through the particular -- though subtle -- use of color. As the work progresses, I will be able to explain more specifically what I mean by this - and what it is I am attempting to accomplish.
As always, thanks for stopping in. : )
