Horse Portrait progress

I am happy with the progress I've achieved so far on this portrait, considering this is larger commission than usual for me.  You can see my pastel pencils at the bottom of the image for size comparison.

Lovely! Is this about a 16 x 24?
Enjoying the process that you are sharing :)

Thanks Peggy! It's 18x24 so you were pretty close.

This is coming along SO SO beautifully, Colette!! Are you using strictly pencils on this portrait? or do you use sticks as well.? LOVE IT!!!

Thank you Hilda! The portrait is almost entirely done using pastel pencils. I use a white NuPastel stick to lay down the white basecoat and everything else on top is pencil.
