New Addition

So intent on painting the rider and horse, I failed to photograph the painting in-progress.

First I started with the rider's hat because I wanted the darkest value established. Next I moved to the shadows in his jacket and then to his pants. Mixing several colors including burnt sienna, I painted the leather straps and saddle. The colors which I mixed for the calf were modified for the horse and I saved the "white" of the horse for last. I used my usual titanium white with a hint of cadmium yellow deep for the white.
