Here's the horse that appears in a study below. Tomorrow I'll add more texture to the grass and maybe darken the hilltop toward the right hand side just a little, so that the storm clouds don't come so far forward on that side. I'll also add some detail to the horse's face and deepen some of the shading on him so that he looks more rounded.
By the way, here's some exciting news: A couple days ago I signed a contract with Lyonshead Gallery, which is a prominent gallery in Carmel Valley. They have about six of my paintings now, but I'm working toward August, which will be more like my official arrival there. Visit www.lyonsheadgallery.com to see the other painters they represent.
