This one was a struggle.  I now have three brands of Burnt Sienna that do not have good coverage.  The last one I bought is good if it is THICK.  :tongue:

Thank you Carol-I'm hoping for another 'growing' moment-I kept wanting to stop so I am just happy that I saw it through!
I hoping you are having an easier time of it!

You have gone further than me Natalie I am still yet to do the ears and the mouth, I am posting here so you can see something I saw in the internet I quite liked, it's a frame on the canvas already painted on (Should have remasked the white before I started painting but over all not a bad look. 

I am looking at the shadings and think they need to be blended a little more in the face especially around the eye.  I will do the ears and mouth and then use the unlocking formula to do more blending and colour adjustment (thank goodness for Interactive LOL)

great job guys :clap: :clap: :clap:
this is not the easiest of paintings as you can see from the length of the class ;D

Jackie, what you want to do is add more sunlight to the right hand side of the horse - bridge of the nose, forehead and that funny protruding bone by his eye :D

 :thankyou: Nolan, I going to do that right after the ears are done.....I'm getting to the scared to tweak it more stage now as I'm happy with his colour.....I added some red gold to him so he's more like the Chestnut horse in the paddock next to me rather than a brown horse which lives across the road  So a horse of a different colour :) :2funny: :2funny: Horses for courses?  Ok I will quit horsing around ;)

The owner of the chestnut thinks it would be cool if I painted his horse....If I made the blaze a bit longer I might just have it...wonder if he's pay for it  :2funny:

I've really enjoy this lesson it's been a challenge...similar to having a lot of greens, having a lot of burnt sienna's is hard too :) I am going back over the sunlight on the face part of the lesson......hopefully he will be complete tomorrow

Wow....great jobs on the horse.  They are wonderful.  I haven't attempted it yet....watched the whole class and will watch it again first.  I have to see the 'tulip' again to see how to leave my painting and come back without a hard line.  I think I remember, but will check just to be sure.
Terrific horses everyone.  Looks like a tedious lesson....lots of blending.
