So on top of the black gesso on the boards, went the lighter color,
getting the shapes dialed in so it looked like a horse ...
Adding the color and figuring out what to do with the large blank back wall ...
I decided that there was a window in the back of the stall.
How to paint it so that it looks like a window and not a painting hanging there,
was harder than it sounded.
|This is what it looked like on my easel.|
This version totally seemed as if a painting was hanging on the wall behind the horse.
This one is much better.

First time I have ever painted a horse portrait!
I have to admit it was fun, and I believe the horse looks happier than the photo.
Thanks for viewing my painting efforts.
I would love to read your comments and I will answer them too!
