Another Friesian update.

Another few hours spent on the front horse today re-establishing the highlights and adding colour. I keep lifting off the dark areas when I'm working as they are taking a long time to dry so I think I'll do a bit more work on the front horse's face this evening, stick the floor shadows down, give them tails, and then leave it for a week to dry properly before getting back to it. It's still quite rough close up! It is really hard to judge the darks as they all sink a bit once they are dry; I'm toying with the idea of adding a layer of retouch varnish to give everything an even gloss and see where I am at better!

Need to think of a title too...
