|I was recently asked by a woman in Washington if I could do a horse/rider painting as a gift. This is my drawing ...|
|I have also done a color work-up, so I won't run into trouble later in the painting.|
|The painting is larger than I have been doing lately - 16 x 21 inches.|
Here, I've masked out a thick outline of the horse and rider, and done several background washes of quin. burnt orange, quin. violet and indanthrone.
|The background is largely completed, so I've removed the masking, and started applying thin glazes of quin. violet and indanthrone to indicate the shadows. From the photos, the horse appears to have a violet tint overall to his grey coat.|
