It has been a long while since I've posted but thought I'd share one of my latest pastels as I worked on it - in a WIP (Work in Progress). This is a photo of my horse Billy Bob that I took not long ago - I used it as my reference.
Here is my progress after about 90 minutes. I call it the "ugly stage because it is all I can do to keep from throwing it away at this point!
Here I have about another hour or so into it and decided to leave it until the next day to see what I can do to finalize it.
And finally here is the final version. I tweaked the lights and darks and added a few small details and called it finished!
Looking At Ya!

Philippians 4:8 (KJV)
Finally, brethren, whatsoever things are true, whatsoever things are honest, whatsoever things are just, whatsoever things are pure, whatsoever things are lovely, whatsoever things are of good report; if there be any virtue, and if there be any praise, think on these things.
