Horse Portrait - Graphite Drawing of Bud - 3rd Step

Horse Portrait by Lori Levin
This one is maturing like fine wine...it is getting better VERY SLOWLY with time. Sometimes I can really work quickly and other times, with pencil drawings as large as this one, its seems to go at a snail's pace. This photo is really dark (consider that the paper is white) but I think you get the idea. It looks as if I am moving from top to bottom but I still consider the values of the whole before I commit to any area.

Off to buy "stuff" for my booth at the Canine Partners for Life Open House on Saturday. I figure by next year I should have my act together. Right?

Oh, a quick note on Gracie. I will get her blog together...looking to do it on the new Blogger, the Beta version. She is doing really well with her training. My "viscous" pit bull is getting compliments everywhere we go for her perfect behavior. Check out the site for where we are taking classes. The gang at K-9 Basics is the best! Unfortunately between getting ready for the booth and Gracie's recent "limping" issue, we have missed class this week. Hopefully we will both be back to school next week. I'm sure I'll have plenty to tell you all about with that!
