Another Dark Horse

First horse completed in Strength and Glory
First Horse is Done

My first horse is for the most part done. There is plenty of detail work left and I will go back and adjust the colors when I put in the number two horse and then again when I fill in the background. Because I work with my subject matter first and background last, I must consciously avoid a cut and paste look that can sometimes happen.

I work in this order because I always start in the same place, the eye. For most of my work the eye is the focal point of the painting. Also personally it is what gives my animals life. I may paint an orange and purple horse but if I get the eyes right it is a believable animal. If I fail to get the eye, the painting for me will seem a failure. So I start with that crucial part and work around that central point, filling up the empty space.
