The Lipizzaner

The Lipizzaner

‘The Lipizzaner’ made with Conté crayons on acid-free black paper (honeycomb structure). Sometimes I challenge myself by using a medium that I don’t really prefer :). I do this because I know I learn from it and I love to surprise myself with an unexpected result. And there is another thing I loved about drawing this one. With water-colour I never use white (white doesn’t exist in water-colour, officially). So with this drawing the sheet is black and I had to use almost only white. That does something to the brain :).

Anyway, I am really happy with the result. I hope you are too!
