This is an update on my new little painting. For a few days this one looked very purple, it still does but not the way it once did. The thing that will make this one different is that I am including the bridles and a little bit of the riders. Normally I edit those things out as I go but for this one they are part of what the painting is about.

With my interest in horses I have made an effort to attend all the local shows I can. The place I visit most is the Salt Lake County Equestrian center. This month I went to the Utah Horse Expo, Paint horse Show and Arabian horse show. I have not started any large artwork based on these shows yet but I thought I would share picture or two. I set up my art supplies and painted from life at the Arabian horse show. It is harder than it looks. I didn't get any finished paintings I loved but I did get some studies started. Later I will make them actually look good. Here is one of the studies as of now. It is an 6x8 inch oil painting on a wood panel.

The most noticeable change now is the hair on the close horse. I did a lot more but that quick change is the one I notice; especially when compared with the horse behind it. I am also trying to get the chest area of that horse ready to finish on another day.
