This is a studio painting that was painted on 08-19-2010. I started the painting several weeks ago and like many paintings I discarded it because I didn't know how to finish it. As I was thumbing through the rejects this piece caught my eye so I decided to pop it up on the easel. The green really caught my eye and I remembered that's why it ended up tossing it aside the first time. But with a new day brings a different attitude and what I didn't like before seemed very appealing now. 
 I added some off-whites to the background, some darks to the mane and this painting started to come alive. I really like the zigzag crayon stokes in the face and neck and of coarse the green which you can see in the close-ups above. . As with yesterday's post I'm also incorporating some thick acrylic paint into my studio works. The texture really adds to the finish so long as I don't overdo it. 

That's all for this one. Hope you enjoy the new work and thanks for stopping by. Have a fantastic Saturday and I'll see you back here tomorrow.
