Annie, I think he is delightful. I love those blues in the black coat. You asked for crits and my only one would be that the mane is very stiff and straight. Maybe one or two strands crossing over each other would make it look more natural. Maybe the groom took his work very seriously!!!!

Thanks to you all .... the two Karen's, Chammi, Susan, Eric, Carol, John, Kathryn and Raymo ..... much appreciated. :D

Chammi ..... "one or two strands crossing over each other" sounds like a great idea.....if only I could pluck up the courage to touch the painting again ....:eek:

Carol .....if only I was as good as Katie :envy: ..... I would be over the moon.....:D

Raymo ..... you are wise .....always agree with the ladies ....

I like your horse Annie :heart: , do you know about scratching using an
x-acto knife. Works great for strands crossing. It does take courage
the first time tho.

I had never heard of that before Ozzie .....thank you .....:thumbsup:
I checked youtube but so far have not seen any demonstrations on the technique. I shall keep searching but I kinda have an idea of how to do it and will try it out on an old painted canvas first. :crossfingers: :eek:

Here is a link Annie. This is Steve Driscoll and a member of WC, altho never here.
It is a very short video... and a common technique in the air brush world. He even uses a dremel tool.

That should work Annie, I think you could even use a single edge razor blade if you chose. But on paper... it may tear, the canvas is tough.

The thought is that you can make a thinner line than with a brush... this may or not be true, just another choice I guess. It is good to have choices.

Great horse portrait Anne youre doing very well I agree with Chammi a few loose hair suggest the wind movement and freedom
Nice video too

You are right Ozzie .... choice is a good thing .....and nothing ventured nothing gained ..... :D :eek:

Robert ....thank you ..... yes a few loose hairs does seem to be the best solution ...... I just have to pluck up the courage and do it ..... :eek:

That's a well-known watercolour technique Annie - so's the lifting out - can also use it with acrylics as long as the paints still damp (for the lifting out).

I don't paint horses - and to me this is super! I'd agree with Chammi's comments though.
Don't know about the musculature of the face and it may not have shown clearly in your ref.
Like the colours for the 'black' and the eye is lovely!

The blue-black is superb and I like the perky ears and the eye! Nicely done!
