Pride's Promise - Finished!!

Well I finally finished this one. I'll be taking it in to have it professionally scanned so I will re post it as soon as I get that scan back. This really isn't a great digital file of it. It definitely looks better in person.
I should be starting another piece in the next day or so. I plan on drawing some Zebras. I will post the reference photos that I will be using and show you how I combine several references to get the composition I want. It should be an interesting article. So be sure to check back. I got a sample from Art Boards. They have a board with Arches watercolor paper mounted on it. That is the support I will be using on the zebras. I have never used this before so I'll keep you posted and let you know what I think of the product.


  1. Looks wonderful Gemma! Great job!
    I presume the board has Arches smooth(hot press) on it? or does it come with different finishes?

  2. Beautiful finish Gemma! I can't wait to see what you do with the Zebras! I love Zebras!

  3. Thanks Beth and Meisie!!

    Meisie, The one I will be working on is the Hot Press but they do have other finishes. Here's the link to their site:

  4. A beautiful piece! I look forward to the Zebras. The art board sounds like it will be a lovely surface to work on.
