Having prepared a canvas on a stretcher frame I primed it with a couple of coats of gesso, and using charcoal I sketched in a figure of a horse in a winter wonderland. I wanted to highlight the way to work with white on white, using varying degrees of shaded tones. Using a combination of masked out areas and by letting the paint flow easily around the canvas, I worked with the intention of losing the image and then re-finding it with highlights. Its still a work in progress, but I am hoping it will be this years Christmas Card image.

Thank you to all the lovely people at Brighouse art Circle who made me fee so welcome!
