This equine piece may look familiar to some of you: it is a drawing I began last summer, with the intention of returning to it prior to now. At the time that I sat it aside I had little more than a somewhat pale grisaille laid in. Over the past few days I have completed a solid base coat, and soon will begin layering in the subtle colors and detail work. The piece is being executed on Uart sanded pastel paper, and unless I crop it (again), the finished image size will be 25" x 16".
Before closing I must give a big shout-out to California artist and good friend, Elizabeth Patterson, CPSA, who at present is having a solo show in Paris, France. The exhibition is being held at the Galerie Louis Carre & Cie. Check out the phenomenal video and show images through the gallery link: unless, unlike me, you are actually able to read french -- then you can enjoy the entire page!
Thanks for stopping in.
