I'm back. worked on Fizz a while last night, and a bit today. plan to have him finished tonight. Its been raining a lot, so those are great days to spend at the easel!
I have been informed by owner J. that Fizz is most certainly a He. not the she I referred to prior, sorry Fizz! I thank you J for allowing use of your photo. If anyone is wondering, you must ask, its wrong to just use a photo without the taker's permission. thou shalt not steal and all that.
here's where Fizz is now. I think I will leave the halter a bit less done, so the focus is on that gorgeous face! I like leaving some of the sketchiness.

Why I wanted to paint this is easy—look at that expression! And the light on her tousled mane, her deep liquid eye, and I like the endurance tack she’s wearing.
I started this on a piece of Art Spectrum light blue paper. sketched it out with vine charcoal, and proceeded with all brands of pastels. its not a big piece, only 9.5x11. But I’ve been away from my easel for a while and thought it would make a fine warm-up.
