This one is pretty crude, but it was more a tool to look for an idea for a new painting. just have to find the time to do it. :rolleyes: Looks like it could be a challenge... maybe take it to art class... we'll see.

conte and charcoal on 9 X 12 Strathmore Artagain paper. around 2 hours i think.

I like how you captured the movement of the horses. This would make a lovely twilight scene!

Good strong galloping horses. Hope we see the painting, but this is wonderful just as is.

The energetic lines and dramatic highlights make a striking illustration, Mike...perhaps for a spooky tale of the moors!

I really like this, Mike. The highlights on the horses are just right for a moonlight night with just slight touches on the heathland and the horses have a lovely sense of movement. Hope we get to see the finished picture if you take it further.

Ooooo, I like it on black! Lots of mystery. Whatever it is you're planning, go for it! And then show us!

Don't stop Mike, this is looking so promising, has that ghostly night-time feel already, hope you finish.
