Tuesday!

The initial idea was to paint a Chestnut horse...but I decided first painted it in black and white  (so I could get a sense for the values). I'll leave it here for tonight...and tomorrow I may or may not go to phase two.

Oil Study, Celeste Bergin, Horse, oil on 9x12 canvas paper

Ooh! I like this very much! I am definitely loving value paintings. As to the YouTube thing...hmmmm...Considering I can't really play anything except like 3 note pieces...possibly not in the immediate future. I will see what I can do for the blog though.

Not your usual, but a great foundation here for something meaningful methinks!

You cannot just leave it here, just look at the eagerness in the horse's eye, it would be cruel not to let it have it's head!
