Horse Wrestling – Take 4


Finally getting somewhere with the horses.    I went back to more of a contour-like original drawing which gave everything a bit of life.   I don’t know whether this is the final thing yet but we’re close.   

Some intermediates :


The drawing.   Looks a lot better at this stage  – I need to remember not to get too stiff in the painting.


I did the horses and riders one by one.  First the central figure.   The faces are so small it was impossible to get a likeness.   This may be a good reason to do a larger version.


Second horse in.   I’m feeling pretty good here.    Thankfully I didn’t screw up on the third one.
