July 18 - Dozing (Appaloosa Horse)

"Dozing" Today we have a little exercise in color, working out some details for perhaps a larger painting,  This tricolor Appaloosa is dozing in the heat of a day, full of the humidity we have been experiencing lately.  It's a 6 x 6 acrylic on gallery wrap, and just seems to ooze that sleepy time of day.  Must be because I'm kinda tired tonight?
  Those of you looking to learn something, note the values.  Take it into a photo editing program and take out the color (desaturate) and look at the values, where the contrast is strongest, the movement of darks to keep you in the painting.  It is also a complimentary color scheme, blue/orange. $100 via Paypal or through my Daily Paintings web site.
