This is an 18″ x 24″ oil pastel on a grey Ampersand pastel board. I did slightly alter the head position on the little horse , took out the white fence and altered the rest of the background to give a more open feeling and also to help the horses stand out a bit more. The Ampersand board is a handmade cermaic coated board designed specifically for use with multiple layers of oil pastel. The overall effect resembles a ceramic tile. The board is about 1/8″ thick so can still be easily framed.
