Blue Horse, Work in Progress I

Blue Horse, Work in Progress  Equine art by Sue Steiner, Free Rein Art Studio
I haven't shared a work in progress painting here for a while so thought I'd share my Blue Horse on board. 

Materials:

9 x 12 Board
Gesso
Pastel Ground
charcoal pencil for initial sketch
Acrylic Paint for the underpainting
Oil Paint



Surface:  I gessoed a 9 x 12 board with white gesso and pastel ground.  The ground adds texture.  I had originally thought to try to top this with pastel but decided otherwise once this dried. 


 My palette



 Charcoal and gouache for sketching and highlights



 Adding acrylic underpainting


 Underpainting  Begin using oil paint 



If you, are anyone you know, are interested in a pet portrait or painting of your horse, please take a look at my work and website. I would love to talk about what you have in mind. I specialize in dogs, cats, horses, horse and rider, pet and owner, farm animal and wildlife paintings. I work from small custom stall signs to Life-Sized!
