Sculpting or Painting....

Still wet and blustery here so no excuse not to sit at the easel. Spent a couple of hours this morning on the painting I started yesterday and I'm pleased with the way it's turning out. Most of the times when I'm painting Arabians it feels more like sculpting than painting. I love moulding the form of their faces this pretty lady was being prepared to go into a show class and there was a feeling of excitement about her. She had that look that horses sometimes have when they can see something you can't. At the moment I'm trying to pick up the various colours that were reflecting from her, soft pinky tones and off course blue but also little flashes of yellow ochre. Forgot to say yesterday that I'm doing this on a board in oils and it measures 6x6.
