I spent about 8 hours on this yesterday but I am pleased to have done the grisaille underpainting in just one hit.
The peoples faces almost drove me to distraction, hence why they are more detailed than i had intended at this stage.
Looking forward to the colour glazes coming in now!
The horse is 'Rare Malt' a filly that ran her first race at Newmarket last Saturday. The jockey is Hayley Turner.
