On My Easel..2

Oil 16" x 20"
I'm adjusting the 30 in 30 challenge to work for me. One of my goals is to paint more large pieces, and I can't do that everyday. But, I can paint almost everyday. So, I'm showing some of the daily progress on this commission.
I've loved painting this! I paint cows, bison, but I don't paint lots of horses. I'm not around horses that often, and they say paint what you know. Well, they also say push yourself. (Not sure who "they" are!!) So, when I got this commission I decided to go ahead. I've loved the challenge. I think the hardest part about painting someone's horse, is just that. The horse belongs to them and if some body part is a bit different, they'll notice. Which is why I paid close attention while drawing him. I used grid lines and Bargue references. I don't usually grid drawings. Mentally using Bargue reference lines and points is always helpful and useful in any drawing.
