Just the way I like to do them, up close and personal. This is an 8 x 10 scrap of velour paper. (I hate waste!) Mixed softies and Nupastels. C&C away!

Thanks to all. :wave:
But you know, there was a glaring error in my little lady, pointed out by a friend on the animal forum. Makes me wonder where my eyes are sometime.
Her forlock looks like it is growing out of her ear!! :eek:
Here is the corrected version.

AhhhhhOhhhh...the animal forum has keen eyes! :eek: ...nice correction :)...I can feel the breeze blowing this beautiful horse's mane into the wonderful wisps of hair you painted so skillfully!! :clap:
Kate, I really love the style with this one...haven't been over near enough to keep up with everyone...you're getting to be pretty awesome with those softies! :clap:

Your directional lines in the body lead right to that glorious face, love it!

LOL Annette, Those animal people have eyes like "hawks"! :D Your compliment was almost poetic, thanks.
Sue and Redsy, Your observations mean a lot to me, as both of you like the close ups, too.

Kate this is so wonderfully textural in how you apply your pastels. I want to go up and touch the beautiful soft hair.
I'm also drawn to that eye - over and over again. It's well done and just a treat to look at.
Like Kirk - I too enjoy the limited palette.

Neato!!! I have no knowledge of horse anatomy but he looks great!
I am just beginning to experiment with the velour and am liking it
