shading and highlighting could be worked on if you want to emphasise the 3 D effect
Since the photo was taken I have added shading on the trousers and lighted upp the face of the rider a bit.

That looks better.

Well done, for a first horse that's pretty neat painting. shading and highlighting could be worked on if you want to emphasise the 3 D effect. However, that is only one style of painting, and if you are happy with it, leave it as it is :). Never change your style, unless you feel happy to do so, the most important thing is to enjoy painting, not pleaseing others. :) 8)

Ah... technique-wise, I thought you might be going in this direction:


When in my first posting in this thread used the expression all the pretty horses it was on purpose, as a reference to Cormac McCarthy's novel. But I love Blood Meridian, his masterpiece, even more.

Very nice! Not sure if you consider it done or in-progress, but it has an impressionistic look to it. It's different  ...and that's good to my eye.

It's in progress.

Coming along nicely, a bit grainy, I see you also have trouble taking photos like I do! :)

The trader in gooses from the Berliner Zinnfiguren's set. The inspiration for the chestnut color came from all the pretty horses I saw grazing on my way to the summer house earlier this year.


I am quite sure that Mohr based his figure on this engraving dating back to the years 1789-1791: http://museum.zib.de/sgml_internet/sgml.php?seite=5&fld_0=gr016612
