Not a great photo due to the terrible light but you get the idea!
A dark glaze has gone over the top, a few shadows picked out and now it is on to the first of the real detail! I have just been starting to work my way over the whole painting picking out highlights- face and mane done so far. Bit of a slow process with such a big canvas!
Another 2.5 hours spent on it since the last update so up to 7.5 hours in total so far.
