After about 4 total erasures of the pencil drawing I finally got one that seemed right proportion wise and was spaced right on the paper. This could still go south fast but I am happy with things so far now that I have a good basic drawing.
Just a start. I love looking back at how paintings start and seeing how far they have come in the end. Usually it's for the better, but not always. This one starts with a pretty simple pose. The challenge will be to make it interesting.
All dressed up and ready to go to the AAEA show if it is juried in. The painting is titled "Placed" as this horse came in second and is being walked back to the barn while the winner gets his picture taken in the Winners Circle. I am just hoping it is "placed" in the AAEA show. I will find out in about a month.
