Hunter-Jumper - Work in Progress

As I enjoy the snow falling out my window I am painting away at the easel on a quiet Sunday afternoon. I thought I would post my progress so that you all can follow along. In the above photo I have painted a very general background and a basic drawing of my foreground figures.

Here you can see I have painted out the tree which seemed too strong an element and was taking away from the horse and rider forms. I have also started to add some color to the horse and rider.

I have paused my painting session for today as I am ready to settle down with my hot cup of tea with honey and stare blankly at the television for awhile. Sunday evenings are great for that!! :)

New Year .. New Painting

Well 2008 has come and gone and another year lies before us. I hope that 2009 brings good fortune and good health for all.

As usual I am busy at my easel and have done a 10" x 8" acrylic on canvas. This is a painting I have been meaning to get to for some time. I had taken this picture a few years ago and have just now gotten around to painting this fuzzy cow. I just loved all the hair on this bovine!!

Happy New Year!!
