It really didn't take this long to finish "Shady Place". During this cold snowy spell I've been hibernating, watching art videos and otherwise doing the errands that early January requires. This looks quite different from the hazy start, doesn't it? For some studio paintings I can visualize the outcome I desire until the ending - then the fun of adding color begins. All that color sits on top of a neutral background showing off lavendar, reds and yellows - same colors as in the horses.
