I’ve got two paintings in the running here, working on one while waiting for layers on the other to dry. First off is our friend Fred, who now has a background and a preliminary layer of color on him. Not to worry, he won’t be pink and blue and violet. As I often do, I’m undercoating a white horse with color, which will then become shadow areas that reflect the colors of the background.
And the drafts are coming along right behind. I have a second (and final) coat on most of the harness, haven’t touched the wagon yet but am not worried about it, and will need to put one more transparent coat on the horses. Still debating whether to make the sky a little richer blue. Will wait to see what the horses look like against the current sky, then decide.
