This will be a sepia drawing of two hunt Stewards at the Point to Point course at Cottenham. This has so far been a battle between loving it and tearing my hair out, I am SO glad I started with the peoples faces which is my bugbear! Looking forward to the horses, believe me!!! I have included a close up of the faces.. they do look less wonkey in RL (I think its camera skew). But you will have to take my word for that! lol!
I dont normally 'do' people but I thought that a particular photo of my Sister would make a perfect sepia experiment. I have just picked up a little set of Derwent Drawing pencils to try, so 2 hours later this is the result. It does look kinda like her I think, and my children recognised her straight away which made me smile!
(This has been done on a small square of spare smooth yellow/cream card) Its approx 7 x 9"
I have made a few important decisions this week, the most important being that I have realised that my passion lies more with coloured pencil work than painting. I have made the decision to focus my work on this medium, though I still enjoy painting and hope to do some more.
With future submissions in mind, I have started a coloured pencil original of a TB foal. I am really enjoying it so far! The whole foal is approx 12" tall, ao the head shown here is approx 3".
It will be about 15" square completed. The green Canson card that I am using does not make photography easy! *sigh* Its a little softer in life. :)
