A real oldie. This is in my days of working in pure pastel. The scene was at Acton Scott working farm years ago when we had summers. The painting is actually 15 years old now, I can’t believe it myself, but sometimes its nice just to chew on the chocolate box stuff to get a feel of where you have come from :-)

    Excellent work Melissa, I like especially the way you drawn the fore/ background blurred, focusing on the horse and farmer.

    Brilliant piece of pastel work!! I’ve wanted to do horses ploughing for ages but couldn’t get any good references. I don’t think it is too chocolate boxy at all. It’s of a son of the soil working hard and not idealistic at all..!!

    Just love heavy horses in full harness working on the land, a very beautiful artwork and the subject is so visually appealing, excellent work,
