Working simulatenously on both paintings...It is too bad the subtle colors do not show up in the photo. This one I will probably keep. LeoPardine will be painted in this style, "pushing the paint" around. By practicing with the horses, I am flexing my painting skills for the figure.

I am using real cheap bristle brushes which give me little or no control on cold press board. The paint slides around on this substrate--you will either love it or hate it's unpredictability and randomness. It is like painting with watercolors that way, but it can give you a clarity with the paints that canvas cannot seem to deliver. You just have to let the paint do what it wants to do and take advantage of it.

I love the way you're "digging in" to these paintings, so much energy. Great to know you are taking time to paint.
