A Horse By Any Other Mane

 17" x 11" 

I like the color of my recycled sketchbook paper. And I happen to like the way certain drawings look when laid out against the earthy tone of the surface. I was given the suggestion of doing a series because of the previous drawing, Passive Fish, which I thought was a great idea. The seahorse is the second in the series and much more detailed as you can see. It took me several sittings to finish this one. The only supplies used were a sketch pencil and a mixture of Prismacolor and Crayola Portfolio series watercolor pencils. I'm really proud of the outcome. Especially because I am very impatient when it comes to doing detailed works.
