The series still has a lot of punch for me. I really like it a lot. On matte board? Is that as in unglossy board or as in framing / matting board? Is this an untextured surface? Do you blend by hand? A lot of questions I know but I am tryin to learn something about the medium and you seem to know a lot about it.

I protesting for more equality for all the horses.
one horse is too clear and the rest just blend into the matrix.
great technique tho... I like the ladies a lot!

watching the picture open i thought it was a well balanced horizontal painting
after it finished opening, the painting remained balanced, particularly in color
i would add one more dark to the bottom, though
i like it

impulse-Yes some have different texters just don't use slick one,do your drawing stacking them one on top of another use a light color and doodle all over the whole painting,then choose your colors and alternate when you come to the line drawing,change colors paint it then smuge it with your finger apply black last because nothing will cover black,hope this helps you.

I am enjoying this series as well...missed the braying horse at first now I can't get him outa my site lol. The galloping horse seperating the ground from the sky (in my eye) works well. Your use of color, particularly the lacking of white, is good.
