we'll have some fun together
Jemima Martins riding BH Isolde in a showjumping class
I need to find either a mini-show or a full show that will permit part-body entries.
I do like cross hatching and coloured pencils together - it always looks quite storybook to me, so I have decided to go all out and put this in the storybook category
I also do like coloured pencils for doing mealiness/pangare on bay horses. Unfortunately I used the wrong pencils for this really - too much yellow, and thought a good artist doesn't blame her tools this is mostly because I don't really have any nice peachy pencils.
Jemima and Ollie were sketched in 2B pencil then lined with 2 different thicknesses of Pitt Artist's Pens (Fine and Medium - they were on sale at WH Smiths! Half price for a box of 6! hooray!) - then coloured with a mixture of traditional coloured pencils and watercolour pencils. The hideous hideous wash background is a pale blue watercolour pencil washed with a 1 inch watercolour flat brush.
