A casual observer would say that I saved the hardest part for last, but you would only be half right. I’ve been working this painting from back to front (kind of like riding a dressage horse, now that I think about it–but that’s another topic). The sky had to be first, since it is behind the hills. Then the hills, since they are behind the horse. And then the horse, since it is behind that (PESKY!) clover. So by default, the clover is last. Although, if I were to be perfectly honest, I would probably have left the danged clover for last even if I didn’t have to. It’s always more fun to do the parts you are confident about first!
Charm, showing off the only braids that will stay in her endless mane.
