Thank you paintonbrush!

I had previously taken about 8 years away from any sort of artwork. But I forgot to mention that in the horse picture, I wasn't happy with the portion of the mane in the center. It's a blemish to my eye...but a perfectionist I tend to be.

Hi Heather

I had to come peek at your work. I see what you mean about the mane. But they both are very good drawings. Shading is well done. Hope to see more soon.

Thank you all for your encouraging words! I hope to have more to post soon! :D

I'm really trying to focus on loosening up more, and letting it flow instead of being so focused on perfection. I'm hoping to learn a lot here! I took a couple of art classes in high school, and that's what my teacher kept trying to teach me.

Heather-

Welcome, and your work is beautiful. If you want to loosen up you work, try a medium that is more difficult to achieve detail. I lean toward charcoal and crayon, others move to watercolor.

Remember, perfection is an illusion.
