Work in Progress
Commissioned portraits have been keeping me busy over the past few weeks, so my other work has slowed down. But here is the beginning of a large pastel of a white horse. You can see my charcoal drawing, with only a very light layer of color added. I begin with a light touch, building up the layers gradually so that changes in composition or color can be made in the initial stages of the painting. I haven't really decided on the background yet, so if you have any ideas, I would love to hear them. I can't tell you when this will be finished - it depends on how well my commissions go.
Is anybody having spring yet? It has been snowing all day here. I am ready for some sunshine and flowers!
