Progress Photos of Horse Oil Portrait

This is the blocking in stage of arabic horse oil portrait of Wangelisa. I will let the painting dry over the weekend and then start with next, more accurate layer on Monday.

I haven’t decided what to do with the background yet, as it has to have the right balance between darks and lights in order to make Wangelisa stand out. Also, a photo is always too dark and too light in some areas, that’s not  how we see it with our eyes.

I would prefer to make it look more warm and natural, let’s see what I’ll do. If you would like to see the first stage of this horse, follow the link below.
