This morning I attended Craig Srebnik's equestrian demonstration. He painted it from his photo reference. It took around two hours and came out great. Craig told us a lot of painters feel compelled to "complete" the entire object instead of suggesting and indicating light and breaking up the edges. His demonstration showed us exactly what he meant.
He told us he will add more paint to it later. If you get a chance to watch Craig paint sometime....do it!

On the walk back this little dog said Hello. I told her I'd blog her. Her name is (appropriately) Summer!
