RCMP musical Ride candidate, mixed Media on Canson Canvaspaper

And I am continuing to try to paint freehand as much as possible and just paint in the bottom layers in tones and colours and then adding layers and details on top of it. I choose my background colour with whatever colour I feel like doing at the time.

This Hanoverian/ thoroughbred foal will be a candidate for the RCMP musical ride. This was their first time out in the field and they were pretty lively but stayed close to mum!

i used gouache instead of acrylics and it seemed to go a lot better, I’m not sure why. I like the matte finish of gouache better I guess.

i feel excited about art again, wish I could afford those big canvases and try to sell some!
