Horse in pencil

8x10 Graphite pencil

This is a horse I have had in my 'to-do' file for a while now - photo courtesy of Wetcanvas. My original intention was to do this in colour but changed my mind after enjoying working with pencil again when doing Duke, the Newfoundland.

I used pencil all the time before I discovered coloured pencils and they took over, so it was nice to re-acquaint myself with this medium. The downside - I have never been happy with how graphite scans, or photographs for that matter, and always think a lot of the detail is lost.
