So You Wanna Be a Polo Player

Today we were over in Germany ๐Ÿ‡ฉ๐Ÿ‡ช again watching and photographing again for another Polo tournament. This time it was outdoors on an open field as it normally is. Made a few sketches of course but as they are just preliminary they need to be further worked on before I share them…

But I have a cute drawing I did last week following last weekend’s matches. It is meant to be the third in the Trilogy from that weekend which I would have shared it earlier. Unfortunately we got a bit interrupted and distracted with other happenings during the week like that toothache and King’s Day!

After having sketched by pencil, I coloured in the drawing using sets of grey and brown scale artist’s coloured pencils. Koh-I-Noor makes excellent ones called Polycolor 12 which provide a range of tones (cool and warm) and shades.

These pencils are not too soft which means they will last a while but you need to layer over a few times to get a darker consistency. But am nevertheless pleased with the result. Perhaps I could blend a bit more especially the brown on the horse… but I hope you like the kawaii atmosphere it brings … ๐Ÿค—
