Hi! Here is an update on one of my latest paintings. I met this horse a few years ago while traveling in Ireland. I took quite a few reference shots of him because he was amazing and I knew that someday I would paint him. I am currently in the process of creating layers of washes for the background.
The painting is still wet so please excuse the glare. The canvas is 36" (h) x 30" (w). In the next few days I will adding layers of paint and building up certain areas. I will post more pictures as I go.
In other news, after 10+ years of not riding- I have decided to get back in the saddle. As I mentioned in my last post, I was once a full-time rider but distanced myself from the sport after selling my horse.
I am really looking forward to reconnecting with this passion and making new four-legged friends.
I hope you are having a good weekend. B
