The first colour went on today! Most of my time was spent on the grass and the foal, but a quick glaze has gone over the adult donkey and the far background too.

As always I'm struggling with the grass. The blurry but realistic look I want is so tricky to get! I'm reasonably happy with the texture and tone at the moment, it just looks a bit acidic. Going to leave it for now, once a few more glazes have gone on the donkeys they'll lose their stark whiteness and that will affect the way the grass looks so will re-evalute later!
