La Bonita by AmandaDrage La Bonita by AmandaDrage
Spanish foal Nicola. Mixed media (pastel, colourpencil, acrylic, a bit of oilpastel)
A4 size toned pastel paper.

I had a bit of trouble with this one but I got there eventually. Basically I lost the tooth of the paper on the foal, and it needed more work, so I was throwing anything at it in desperation and hoping it would stick - hence the oil pastel (in tiny amounts, blended in well with a rubber-tipped shaper) I wouldn't recommend this method. :lol:

Reference was used with permission, thanks to Jose Maria Mayoral of Caballos Mayoral. [link] (They post a ton of photos and it's way back so I don't know if I can find it. I'll have a closer comb through in a sec and see if I can get a link.)

Does anyone know if the Spanish name Nicola is male or female? I'm not 100percent sure of Nicola's gender, but I have gender-assigned for the purpose of this piece lol. If it turns out it's a boy, I'll have to change the title!

Thank you very much, glad you like :) I do! A drawing like this at the same size would be around £75-85 (postage extra).
