Natalie - horse portrait (pastel)

Hey all, this is my latest finished commission. Chalk pastels, about 12x18 inches. I'm guessing about 6 hours of work.

Stunning! The highlights and contrasts are just right and the background color brings it all together perfectly.

Re: Natalie - horse portrait (pastel)

This is beautiful!!! I agree with all of the comments here thus far -- so real, beautiful eye. Only 6 hours is unbelievable. I also would like to know what type of paper, looks like a velour.
