Blue Horse, Work in Progress I
Blue Horse, Work in Progress
Equine art by Sue Steiner, Free Rein Art Studio
I haven’t shared a work in progress painting here for a while so thought I’d share my Blue Horse on board.
Materials: 9 x 12 Board Gesso Pastel Ground charcoal pencil for initial sketch Acrylic Paint for the underpainting Oil Paint
Surface: I gessoed a 9 x 12 board with white gesso and pastel ground. The ground adds texture. I had originally thought to try to top this with pastel but decided otherwise once this dried.
Charcoal and gouache for sketching and highlights
Adding acrylic underpainting
Begin using oil paint
