A gorgeous Arabian foal, feeling the night air with the moon reflecting his coat colours. I used small strokes to layer and achieve the baby fur of a foal. This was my first attempt at pastel on black paper and proved to be fun and much to learn!
Working on a black surface reverses my working process: I usually work dark to light but the black paper is your darkest shadows and so I had to retrain my brain and eye to work dark to light!
