A Busy Barnyard - I Mean, Studio!

I had two paintings on the go today - one of which I finished. Being Wednesday, I completed the next painting of Jubie's baby (who you'll hear me calling Jubaby for reference only!). You had a little preview of my reference shot last week, and above is the resulting 6 x 8 oil on Raphael linen panel.

My other painting is also a small one - 5 x 7 - and also a baby, but a different species. I'm painting a little Galloway calf. He's not finished yet, so you'll have to wait a while to see him.

Sunday was a big day at Woodbine - both the Canadian Oaks and Plate Trial Stakes. It's just about time for me to do some Plate Preview paintings, so I went to get some pics for that. Looks like the fillies may be well represented again this year. I think we're due a filly winning the Plate!

Roan Inish out-games Moment of Majesty to take the Oaks.

Nice the model pose with the haughty over the shoulder look lol. Looking forward to seeing the Galloway love the Belties reminds of summers as a child :)

This guy's a dun, Elizabeth. He's very cute. I need to get over and take some of my own pics, as this one was supplied by his owner.

Having fun painting the filly, too! One of these days I'll paint another human! :-P

Love the composition on this one--well balanced asymmetry and very effective.

Thanks Judy - I was almost going to take it further in that direction, but truth be told, didn't have the right size panel, and wasn't up to cutting one! :-)
