    This is a very quick and rough sketch. For the first time I used my Medion graphic tablet. First I used the pencil, then tried watercolours. I wasn't too happy with them, so I used the oil brush. Looking forward to critique and comments! Hmm, I just noticed that the eye is not right. It is funny that I need to upload a piece in order to see what's wrong!

    Hi Ulla, keep working on it. If you're not used to the shapes of horses, get a ref photo, even if you're not copying. The eye does need to go down, but a good effort nevertheless!

    Thanks eighty+, Robyn and byroncallas for taking the time to look and for your encouraging comments. I've got lots of reference pics, and I love horses. Have done some drawings with a "normal" pencil, but I definitely have to practise more often, and I will do.

    I decided to do one horse sketch daily, at least till Easter. Here's one of a hoof:

    Thank you, Jean! It is awesome what you can do with Artrage. I enjoy learning new things every day and practising. Fortunately I've got 2 weeks off work, so I have the time to do it!

    It is just a sketch, so I focused on the movement, on the legs (very difficult!) and on the fur colour. Used the pencil, the ink pen, oil brush and watercolour brush. Comments and critique are welcomed!
