Is Breakfast Ready Yet?

I got further along with this piece for the Florida Barn Book cover than I realized, and I'm sorry not to have shown you the basic drawing first. This is an oil pastel, 18" x 24" on Gesso Board, and they wanted a horse at a gate in a misty morning setting. My friend, Elin Pendleton,, has a new DVD in the works on just this foggy lighting, and I wish I had it now to refer to. She is a master in different lighting and I encourage you to go view her work. This is just the first layer and there will be many more to come, with reflected colors of the morning sun trying to come through. Please feel free to coach me or offer suggestions!
