'On the go' and 'Exhilaration'

I love Sundays... a couple of child-free daytime hours painting with the smell of our Sunday roast in the oven !

I quickly blocked in the pony in the snowy painting today (below) and then got distracted by 'Windswept' and ended up tinkering with that for ages... then planned to just stick a brown glaze over the donkey and pick out some shadows but ended up spending quite a while on it loosely applying paint. I hardly ever work wet on wet but I really enjoyed it- think I might challenge myself to do a few sketchy wet on wet paintings. This cute little fellow though will be in my usual style and I'll be adding more detail and refining it once it has dried, which will take a few days.
