Cortana by AmandaDrage Cortana by AmandaDrage
"Cortana" is a PRE x Appaloosa mare. Referenced from a photograph taken by Merel Bormans, with kind permission. [link] Website: www.merelbormans.com

Again the white areas are all conte stick, with some pastel and Derwent Drawing coloured pencil details. A4 size Daler-Rowney Ingres pastel paper.
I was originally going to add snowfall and some cold breath (inspired by the snowy weather here right now!) but decided if I did that, I'd have to add a background... and I hadn't planned ahead for that so I left it.

Not sure what to do with it right now - the conte is quite loose on the pastel paper so really it would need fixing, but fixing ruins the whites...! Maybe put it somewhere flat and just never touch it again :XD:

She reminds me of my first horse, she looked just like her. This is absolutely beautiful and brings back fond memories of my old friend.

Thank you very much, I'm glad you like it. You're lucky to have owned a horse like that. I adore pale horses with freckles.
