The Guards

I thought the background looked too light, so I darkened it a bit.

With the horses completed, except for the tack, it is time to start on the Horse Guards.

I start with the black shirts, then the cuffs. Next is the really fun part - the breast plates. The sky is reflected in them which adds a wonderful blue to the painting. At least one breast plate will mirror the monument at the end of the parade grounds.
