And Then there are Days Like This...

I guess it wasn't a big surprise that I had so much trouble with today's painting. The shot I chose to work from was fairly challenging, but I couldn't resist the look on this boy's face. Medz is a three-year old Thoroughbred gelding, and he's still just a big baby. I rubbed bits of my drawing out a few times, and still didn't really get it right, but I was running out of time so I just went with it! There are days when drawing with the brush seems effortless, and then there are days like this where I go in fits and starts!

This painting is 8 x 10 oil on masonite panel, done with the same limited palette I've been working with for the last week.

So there you have it - week one, complete!
