Giz a Kiss

Wow, Val, wonderful detail, particularly in the mane. Also a great capturing of a typical horse movement - scenting the air with open lips. Lovely work.

Super work on the mane Val - and I love those moody blue colours!

Gorgeous pastel drawing Val, great palette

This is a great pastel Val, the detail is wonderful but what sets it apart is the lovely cool blue you have used around the portrait........makes it special.

Love the colours you've used for the highlights here Val x

Thank you Thea, Debs, Ros, Fiona, Lesley and Carole, glad you like it. I enjoyed painting it and this is one that seemed to go right ( in my eyes anyway ) from start to finish, doesn't happen very often :)

Love the depth of colour in the coat. the intricate detail in the mane and eyelashes to die for!

Many thanks Glennis, I too wish I had eyelashes like that :)

Ooh Val this is great, love it,

Painted from a lovely perspective, Val, and I like the very subtle palette that lends a bit of fantasy to the whole image. It's delightful!

Soft pastel on colourfix. Another of the wild ponies on the Isle of Rum, not sure I'd like to give it a kiss though lol. Thanks for looking.
