One big idea I learned from Anne Blair Brown is the value of executing several studies - in several sizes and not necessarily in color.   So I've been invited to paint for the poster for a steeplechase in the spring.  I did make studies for this project, and now I have honed my idea down to only 3 horses.  I want a definite feeling of motion and using diagonals could be the way to emphasize the speed.
I've also learned not to be afraid to scrape and start over - all of the painting or just parts.   Very freeing.

the last photo is the latest study getting to the finishing stage - will it make the cut?
