I painted a big dark shape across the bottom and had to erase it. It looked horrible. I don't want my horse to look grounded, I want it to seem like he's flying low. I had to put the sock into action and clean the board back to white gesso.
The forms of the paint are taking shape in the background. I like the colors of red and orange like this. They resemble the energy of fire. They're also hot colors that set off the cool colors of the horse.
