<IMG SRC="http://www.radiks.net/~ghb/WOW.gif" border=0> This is very good...colored pencils are a joy. I sure miss Slate Gray (#936) since Prismacolor stopped making it.

<IMG SRC="http://www.radiks.net/~ghb/WOW.gif" border=0> GaryB, wanted to try out that image http://www.wetcanvas.com/ubb/wink.gif

I really like the pose of the horse and the colours you have used. I especially like how you have done the horses textures. http://www.wetcanvas.com/ubb/biggrin.gif http://www.wetcanvas.com/ubb/wink.gif

This is a very nice portrait. The Equine Art Guild has several members from Europe but one recently was inquiring about others in England. I can't find the specific thread in my mailbox but you can check our egroup board and find it. I can't even remeber who it was from. Here is the link http://groups.yahoo.com/group/equineart You ought to get in touch with this person as you may be able to exchange information about products available in your country. She was saying how nice it would be to talk to someone in her own country. She doesn'' always know what we folks in the US and Canada are talking about. If you can't get her email address from the egroup, please email me and I will find it for you.

Your artwork is lovely.

Beautiful Job! Did you use blenders?

I sure miss Slate Gray (#936) since Prismacolor stopped making it

By the way, I just picked up a slate gray a couple of weeks ago at a nearby artstore. I didn't realize prisma was going to stop making it. The art stores must still have some in stock. I guess I better head back and stock up on some more.
Thanks for that info.

WOW!!! Beautifully done!
He looks like one of our old geldings "Prince". Give him a quart (*g*)of 'redcell' each morning and boy could he move out!!

Beautiful Job. I know it's even better in person, because I can see the compression blurr.
I have not done anything in color pencil in a while. You got me thinking about it.

No i have never used a blender with coloured pencil - I didn't think it would work! this is simply built up with many layers and a little burnishing in places. I don't think we have prismacolour pencils in England or not by that name - I mostly use berol karismacolour and don't know of slate grey - never mind you don't miss what you've never had!
Thanks for the comments everyone - you have improved my confidence no end http://www.wetcanvas.com/ubb/biggrin.gif
