oil on gessobord
This painting I made from a picture made on the dude ranch in Bandera, Texas. The farrier was working in a shady spot under a tree. The horse seemed happy. The background needed a few adjustments. There was an edge of high, dry grass in front of the bushes and trees but then the depth in the painting was gone. I made the trees more blurry and added dark underneath the trees and it was an instant improvement.
