Summer Afternoon 2
Here is the next step with the underpainting colors. This is a challenging, but fun, painting to get the mix of dappled shade on the white ponies and still be able to get the detail in the pure black pony.
This morning, I heard a scratchy, squawky critter noise and went out to see one of the "chickenettes" (remember the chicks hatched a while back?) practicing the beginnings of crowing. He looked quite startled at his new voice! Now I'll be able to tell how many hens/roosters we have from the baby flock.
Tune in again for the next step on this painting!
