A Winning Drive

11 x 17 charcoal and pastel on paper. I used grey and beige pastel with charcoal for this piece. I rubbed the charcoal as well and then added sharper line. Hope you like it.

you definitely got the feel of movement and fast action.

Thank you for your comment! I am trying to show movement and energy in my equine art. So glad you noticed!

I do like it, although I LOVE your color that you normally use. Good composition.

Thanks Kay! I like to use subtle, neutral color combinations so that the emphasis is on the line and composition. I love working with color too, but sometimes I find color overpowers everything else. Does that make sense?
