9"x12" Pastel on smooth sided Canson Pastel Paper

It's been a long time since I have painted, and it felt so good to get dusty again! Still trying to get used to wearing the new glasses, but my eyes are finally calming down and I can see to paint!

This is my first real horse portrait and I have been worried about doing it. It took about 2 hours to draw it in with vine charcoal and paint.

Thanks for looking,
