Re: Rounding the Bend

Just one thing, the lead horse's leg is bugging me. It looks like a human leg, to me. And even if it didn't look human, it still dominates the picture. Even if it's accurate and correct, it still throws things off, in my opinion.

After that, the middle horse is a little odd. It's body is undefined and looks like a blob. Maybe it's just that the shading of that horse doesn't come across well on my screen.

Otherwise, it's a very powerful painting. I can almost hear the horses pounding the track.

Sorry for being critical.

Re: Rounding the Bend

Very nicely done but I have to agree with Tony on the lead horses legs. Something just feels off to me with the positioning.
Other then that you've done a great job with it.

Re: Rounding the Bend

Tony... I agree with you assessment about the middle horses body shape and the lead horses back leg. It does look human. Thanks for the honest response to my attempt at capturing the chaos that is a horse race. In a few days I’ll make some adjustments. Thanks.
