Big Red Coat ..


Tonights drawing is The Big Red Coat which is a revision of a previous drawing done months ago which I quite liked but the opinion of others here stopped me from posting it anywhere.  They said the composition is bad and her face is a bit crooked etc.  So tonight I drew this one from the much maligned original.  I was not going to post this one either as I still liked the first one better.  But after giving it a second glance I decided to put it here.  I just love black and red together .. have you noticed?  lol  Pastel Pencil, Conte sticks and a bit of pastel on Fabriano pastel paper.  Approx. 5 1/2 x 7 inches

Super fast drawing ...


This is not the first drawing that I did this evening .. the first one was very 'careful' and way too neat.  After a stressfull week with two sick ponies and a hefty bill from the Equine Vet .. I wanted to relax this evening and do a drawing.  After spending quite some time doing a drawing which I hated I decided to scrap it and do a quick one that was more to my liking.  This is a drawing of Nicole which looks ... 'not much like her' .. lol In the first one I wanted to capture her lovely smile .. and I did! ... It's not evident in this one but I did enjoy belting it out super quick with the help of a glass of wine. ;)  Mostly pastel pencil and some conte sticks on Fabriano Tiziano Pastel Paper.  Size approx. 8"x 10"
