'Between Chukkas, Bridlington Beach'

Some more work on the background and a start made blocking colour in on the pony. Still lots of work to do on the background but I need the subjects done really before I can see how much I need to darken the background shadowy areas up. The light and shadows in this are really strong!

I'm also working on the first of a commissioned mini series but I think I have but too much Olive Green in the background as it is taking a ridiculously long time to dry?! This one is 5"x7" and I wish it would hurry up as I'm looking forward to painting the horse in such a great pose!!
