The Knight Is Done - He's Off to the Lists

"A Hard Day's Knight" ???
9.5 x 8 in.
24 x 20.5 cm.

I am reasonably satisfied with this. I accomplished what I intended. Painting large pieces of metal was part of the challenge.  Not getting tempted to paint every detail was another - that was hard with the horse. And painting wet-in-wet washes over a largely completed part of the image was the most important technique I tried. The focus of this painting was to be the armor, especially the face-plate on the horse, and I believe I was able to keep the focus there. So ... experiment done. Now onto some calves, flowers .... ????
