PIXIE......

Didn't go to the show today decided to be dedicated and get on with some work. Started on this wee head study of 'another' foal....mind you, you can't ever have enough foals to paint. It's on a rather pale hardboard primed with clear gesso. Was going to start straight off with an oil wash of Ultra and Burnt Sienna but instead decided on a little wash of acrylics instead. This way I can find out if there is anything desperately wrong with my drawing before I start with the oils....cheating in other words :).
Now going to cut a board 26x25 for an 'after the race' painting I'm itching to do and might just use the same method with it.
Have a lovely evening where ever you are and thanks as always for looking in.
