I have continued to work on this painting of the horse and girl. Choosing colors is always a challenge. It is important to find what works for each painting. I have favorite colors that I use over and over but they are not always the best choice. It takes several layers of brown and other colors to develop a deep rich color for the horse. I also wanted to use cooler colors in the mane on the top of his head because it reflects the sky.
Here’s my work so far:
working on the young lady today and will post those pictures soon.
