Not sure this is posted under the right heading of pen and ink but this is a drawing I did from a morguefile photo in the December challenge which I decided to do in pen and ink and watercolor.  Let me know where this needs improvement.  Thank you!

That's great, Mary Lou.  Great faces on the horses.

Would a bit brighter red on the sleigh liven up the painting?  Seems too subdued - yet, beautiful.

Maybe not, as it would take the focus away from the horses.

Thanks Mea, I wanted this to be rather subtle.

This would probably be better put in the watercolour encourager section. I'd classify it as a line and wash.
