Love it, Jane. Your background washes are superb.

Studio at the Farm ha detto...

Hmmm ... I have a question. Do you prefer to apply the washes with brush or to pour?

hi katharyn thanks for looking ..it was a good lesson and subject ...liked the bg washes messed up the final wash on the umbrella ... most of my washes are applied with brush ..lots of water and tilting .. i know you enjoying pouring .. the little pouring i have done is really exciting ... excellent start to your horse portrait

This tells a story ... who has left this here in the misty rain? Very atmospheric ... and I love the way you've painted the grid with the lost and found edges, texture and light.
