The pale horse
Posted by Martin on March 20, 2007
The verdict on the work so far on the pale horse has been too much at the extreme ends of the palette. Too much flat earth in the shadows and too much ivory on the highlights. It’s clearly going to take a while before my style adjustments for painting horses come naturally to me.
I’ve made some corrections now and eliminated an awful lot of the worst excesses. No “before and after” shot I’m afraid. I didn’t actually get round to pointing the camera at the “before” condition but here’s the “after”.
Bear in mind this is still w-i-p, so there’s a whole load more to do and horses never seem to come together until the rider is painted up.
