Your pastel work is outstanding!

Hello Heather, You are invited to post this incredible image and one other of your choice in the new group: what's in it for you. This group will feature animal images from Friday November 15 through Thursday November 21.

What feeling. V/F

Thanks Heather! Yes please do get back if you have time. It may not be available in the UK, but I would be interested to know. I often use a French made pastel card by Sennelier (called Royal Sovereign, I think).

This is done on a grey/black paper, smooth surface, which I buy in bulk from a local art store ... I will check the name of it out and get back to you! I always do pastel of smooth surfaced paper as I do not like the texture of a paper to take away from the artwork when doing a portrait like this :)

Great technique! I particularly like the format and composition of this one. May I ask what surface you used? and is the deep grey its natural colour?

Love this! Very well done! v

Artist's Description

Portrait, in soft pastel, of a rich blood bay horse :) The models name was "Beau", and he had the kindest eye I had seen in a long time. This portrait really showcased his soft gentle personality. This portrait is one of many that I did on a solid black background, which makes it very striking and helps the horses head stand out and capture your attention.
