Several days ago I drove by a neighbor who had his horses out and was saddling them to go for a ride. OF COURSE I had to stop! We had a lovely chat, and I took a whole bunch of pictures. I've never painted a horse before. I have a vague memory of drawing these goofy, cartoon-y horses in junior high, but that's it! So I really, really wanted to try it!
Part way through I panicked over the eye. I sort of think I over came that... but part of me still thinks the front horse's head is flat instead of 3-dimensional! And his neck totally bugs me. I've changed it once, and now that I'm looking at it again I might have to make more changes!!
Learning, right? Even with the foibles, this was great fun to paint!
