Gosh but it was a long afternoon at the stables with the heat turned up a notch...I'm looking more and more a native Australian every day lol.
The morning was spent running around town getting supplies from numerous stores. Not just art supplies but packaging supplies as well. Rushed home to start a painting of Watermark Gypsy Cobs Stallion, The Full Monty. I've got a quick underpainting done and my impasto added for texture. Let it dry while I was at work and will finish it tonight....already wanna sleep but no time for that...work work work.
He's just on a little 8" x 8" stretched canvas. Didn't have enough time to paint something bigger but this horse's presence is so big, even on a small canvas, he is eye-catching!
The background will have some overhanging trees that will show areas of the sky peeking through so it also has areas of light and shadow on his coat.
Just love this horse!
