Monochrome Pencil Horse Sketch!

Hello to all.  I was inspired to do a 
 bit of freehand sketching yesterday afternoon by a challenge on Splitcoaststampers.   
I have drawn a horse using an HB pencil.    
It was loads of fun to create this and add depth and shadow with the pencil.
I used the Spectrum Noir Premium Pencil Paper and it was fabulous to sketch on. Blending was done with my finger and it all smudged beautifully!



The picture looks a bit blue toned but IRL is sharp and clear black/grey and white.   I had forgotten how much I loved to sketch and its great to get a bit more practice.  


Hope you like my horse sketch, looks like a mare to me!  What do you think?
