I have had a busy day today, started a commission in Coloured pencil and managed to get the drawing done. I have almost done the face on the Glance II. I am really enjoying it (See above) and cant wait to get on with it tomorrow. I have also done a deep blue background for a new mini painting of a grey pony. My Daughter and I tried to get some nice pics of a little grey pony Stallion but they were not really very good :(
This is a 14 x12" oil on box canvas which is destined for a gallery xmas show if all goes well.
This dear little foal nicknamed 'littleman' was our first foal of the year, by racing stallion Selkirk. His young mother sadly passed away this week with a serious colic. As this little boy is destined for sale in December I thought I would paint his portrait to remember him by.
I have so far undercoated his head and body with a colour blocking layer. I have not done an underpainting this time, I didnt feel it necessary with such a small study.
As I was hibernating yesterday due to the horrid weather I decided to carry on with this, & I now have the first detail layer on the ears, eye and muzzle. I have yet to go over it again but I am fairly pleased with the colours. I am trying to keep the vibrancy and the light.
