Mare and Foal

 Initial sketch in charcoal and pastel




16 x 20, oils 'Mare and Foal in Blue'

This canvas is under painted with a warm corral color.  I used palette knives and brushes on this so there is lots of wonderful texture and surprises were the colors mix in these lovely ways. Touches of  turquoise and cerulean blue along with deep blues and purples, burnt sienna, cad. orange and pearly whites. 

I may go back and add some more layers and contrast but was quite happy with the results now so I'll let this dry and see what I want to do.   I will put a price on this in a couple days.
