...working ....

Just to let you know that I am working indeed.

I started a cp drawing, as an experiment I only wanted to draw with a black cp. Thought it might be a bit like grapite drawing. But not so at all. I did spend hours on it, but it just didn't develop as I wanted. I might return at another time, to see if I could do something else with it, but for now it is on hold. The picture is of this drawing. Very often I have a title from start, and this is no exception. "Waiting for you" - and waite it must:)

I have then started a new graphite drawing. I went on a photo-shoot for a white horse, I saw in the field. He was a little far away even for my zoom (aka 300 mm). Did get some shots though. On my bike home, I saw some other horses too. I took a few photos. But when I saw the photos on the PC, one photo from the second horse-shoot, grabed me immeadiatly, so that was my first reference to draw. With a little compositional change I started and is working on it now. I intend to send this to a competition if it turns out good and I'll post it when finished.

Blue ribbon

A very close-up view of a chestnut horse. I intend to show a relaxed, calm mood. The blue ribbon giving a contrast to the all over reddish color of the horse.

The painting is mixed of ink, watercolors, colored pencils and acrylic paint. I used watercolors as the underpainting + ink in darkest spots and then applied mostly cp's and a bit of acrylic. Fabriano 5 wc-paper. The size is approx. 16,7 x 20 centimeters.
