I've never shown a work in progress before but I have a feeling this could take me some time as I've done and redone the foal's head a number of times.:(

Black Caviar in case you haven't heard of her, is a much loved Australian racehorse. She was unbeaten in 25 races and even travelled to Ascot - wearing a compression suit - and won there.

This is her with her eagerly awaited first foal born last month.

Watching with interest June. What a lovely girl she is, and the foal is so healthy and beautiful!

Thanks Robyn, I'm not a racegoer but I used to watch on TV when Nelly was racing - usually holding my breathe until she was past the finishing post. The little filly looks so pretty.

Hi Steve - the main reason I posted here is so that if the going got hard I wouldn't give up - sort of feel committed to finish. I found myself with unexpected free time so got back to it.

Thanks Robyn but now today when I look at it again, something's not right. It's too flat. I'll have to have a think and a play.:confused:
