Painting: Oil on Other.
Two horses grazing in a field, oil on MDF board. This painting grew out of a photograph I took a couple of years ago, of the sky over some fields. I spent a few months gathering drawings, photographs, and colour studies of the individual parts, then did several preparatory drawings before I completed the composition using GIMP.
I began the underpainting in July, and stopped work on the painting three months later. Like most of my larger paintings, it wasn't so much finished as abandoned in despair. I just took it out and reworked it, and I think it's getting to be the way I want it.
