June 16 - The Big Horses Finished
"Continuation" Here is the earlier 30 x 40 painting, much more toward the finished state. It was suggested by one member of the list to paint a buckskin, and after contemplation, here he is. Again, all of this from my head, no references. I also decided to add three more horses so the feeling of the herd would be maintained. It isn't finished yet, but you can see how much more is laid down now. I will get back into it and take care of the anatomical issues plaguing me for not using references, and also to modify the foreground. Please compare this to June 13th's painting. Oh, the dark upper corner isn't dark, that is just the problem with photographing such a large piece at night.
