I am in need of some help with this one……although it is really to help me with my next horse oil paintings. I have now given a base coat and background wash to four large canvases. They are drying, and I have my photos ready, from the recent photo shoot with Tenor, my friends Andalusian horse. So this recent horse painting is my largest yet 70cmX50cm, it was done in oil, But, I have learnt a big lesson, and something I think I should take note of more often….when to stop, when is a painting actually finished?? Well this is why I need your help, I am going to show you the under painting stage, and the finished end result. I am interested to know which you prefer, I have had mixed feedback from friends, but one is in the lead by a little. I really need to know before I embark on future horse paintings, I guess it is more about a style preference than a question of ‘is a painting finished or not’? I can’t do much about this painting now, but I am interested to know your thoughts.
