I guess this was more of a trial, using pastel to do a horse. I love pastel, but I usually use them in combination with watercolour, and usually hairy creatures like dogs, but this one was a large study purely in pastel. It went ok, but I think I will stick to the way I usually use pastels. I also managed to get pastel dust everywhere!
