Starting to glaze the two Friesians

The grisaille is finished now so time for a bit of colour! Very nervous about this a I'm pleased with the b&w version, I don't want to mess it up!

The first layer of colour has gone on the top of the furthest horse, and highlights/shadows picked out again. Will let it dry while I catch the other horse up and then work out where to take it next... this painting feels like a puzzle to solve, all a bit trial and error! Lots more to do, this one is going to take absolutely ages I think.
