View Full Version : From Out Of The Night

I haven't posted a scratch piece in some time. Actually I haven't worked in scratchart for too many months except for demos for classes. This is my newest. 12x16 on ampersand black, Mostly done with various sizes of fiber brushes, some small areas with an exacto knife. Though I've signed it, I'm not entirely happy with it and think I need to reink a couple of spots and rescratch (the far right eye and the lower part of the near leg)
Let me know what you think, C &Cs are always welcome.

Well, IF you throw it out, I'll give you my address. It is stunning I think, I like the drama!

What a dramatic piece.

Karen, Dianna thankyou both! Sorry Karen, I'm going to repair him, not toss him. I'm getting some pieces ready to go in the gallery that represents my work. I wanted drama, so I'm glad that comes across.

Very "dramatic"...that's the right word to describe it!!!!:clap:

Really nice TJ. Love the action you've captured.

Great feeling of action to this piece. I like the stark contrasts. I agree- very dramatic!

Burt, Harold, Cathy, thanks so much for the affirmationns. It's a concensus, He's dramatic. Now to fix the far eye and put him in a frame.

This drawing says so many things...of course the drama ...but, the angle and the placement and angles, as well as the hair being suspended all come together to add grace ,the fleeting moment,speed, the animals confidence,the bulk of this beast THAT your mind almost wants to hear the clop of his hoof....thanks for posting...Rod-Man

Rod, this is such a moving description of my work that it leaves me blushing, all I can say is thankyou for such kind words.

I'll repeat what others have said. This piece radiates raw energy. It reminds me of the feeling I've gotten looking at Remington's horses in "Heading for the Timber" - it kicks the adrenalin up a notch just looking at it.

Dave, yours and Rod's compliments are making me blush, you guys honor me. Thankyou!

TJ, I love the movement in this piece. It is stunning!

Mary, I am really moved by all the great reaction to this piece. It really does show that less is more doesn't it.

TJ, this takes me back to watching my sister's Arabians running the hills in the moonlight and brought tears to my eyes. Perfect as it is.

oh, Terri, now you've brought tears to my eyes. I couldn't ask for better praise. I still have to work out the eyes. I re-inked them today and am getting ready to rescratch them. I'll post him on my site when I've finished.
