WDE Aug 22-The Ride

Thanks for all the great selections, Ai!!

I settled on doing the rider. The toughest problem was trying to straighten out the shadows and legs as I eliminated the "horse whisperer" walking on the other side. Then, making up the background is always a challenge for me.

This is oil on a 5x7 canvas panel.

C&C welcome. Thanks for looking and commenting.

Done in 2 hrs

Deano.... I think you conquered the challenges! I really like the color harmony - the yellows/blues/and purples! Another winner.
