With so much painting for my last show and the woodpecker, I've missed taking lessons from Dennis! Here's my version of the horse and plough - sure reminds me of something the old masters would have painted! Great lesson as always, Dennis. Any changes I should make?
Cheers,
Sharon

Very well done, as usual, Sharon :clap: :clap: :clap:
I have a confession to make :blush:   How does he steer the horse? Forgot to add in the reins :o   Look at the reference photograph and then add them in very lightly with pencil.

Sharon,


As good as you are, this one shows even more skills mastered.

The rump on the horse shows a really nice rounding.  That's hard to do with white!

I think I'd add a hint of hoof prints in the furrows, here and there.

Now you see Dennis? I never would have noticed... I need a bigger magnifier!!!  :detective:

Thanks Susan, Mea, Val, Nina and Dennis! And that's hysterical Dennis! I'll add those pencil lines when I get home. Guess I shouldn't just blindly follow you in the future!
Cheers,
Sharon

Dennis, you had me giggling about the reins, poor horse just knows his job well and doesn't need to be steered.
