I have been messing with the background of the first painting I started, as I was not happy with a number of things. Will keep working with this one for the time being, not sure what will become of it.
During this time, I started another background for the two Icelandic Horses. This background will allow the horse's to stand out better.
Just a very, very rough blocking in of the two Icelandic's. I wanted to get them roughed in as soon as possible. Once this layer of paint dries, the real work begins.
Sorry about the glare, just no way to get a good photo of this in the house with a flash.
