10 x 10 Oil on archival canvas panel

I finally managed to get a painting done in the same week the DPW Challenge was posted!  Who doesn't love to paint a horsey! And as usual, I learned something new. In this case, check the finished painting next to the challenge/reference photo.  (This is an easy thing to do with a computer, but you have to remember to do it!)  I had no idea I wasn't using the right value for the horse until I saw it posted with the others.  Very valuable exercise these challenges!  Thank you to David and Carol Marine for providing such a valuable and helpful website.


  1. Your horse is beautifully painted and I love the soft way you have painted the distance to really recede.

  2. This is so nice it is clear you were not just horsing around.
