Horse by burnt tree WIP paintingThis is a work in progress showing the stages of a painting depicting a horse nibbling at some grass at the base of a burnt tree. The location is the New Forest, Hampshire in the UK.
The painting is done in oils on a canvas board measuring 12" x 10". The first panel shows the basic drawing done on a red acrylic ground which is my preferred base for painting on. The drawing is done in brown acrylic paint. The second panel shows a base layer with colours applied using acrylic paint which acts as the under painting. The third panel shows the finished oil painting on top, completed during April 2016.
