It's a Filly! - Same Drawing, Different Medium


Variety is the spice of life! I got my studio set up to paint in oils this past week and just completed my third little canvas. As I said in my SketchingEveryday post today, "Various mediums offer interesting lessons. Like golfers perfecting their stroke, repetition in drawing and in painting is all part of the game." This is a 5" x 7" painting commemorating the birthday of my mare, Santa Margarita. You can see the sketch I did of her today in pencil and watercolor wash on my sketching blog. If any of you painters have suggestions or advice, I welcome your input. I already see some things I may like to change. One of the great things about oils vs. watercolors is you can always go back and make adjustments.
