Fenced In, work in progress horse painting

I painted this last night… not done yet. I will add more light mane and highlights after the paint dries among other things. In my reference (this is my horse Ricco) there is a reflection of the white fence in his eye. I love that aspect of the photo and will see if I can incorporate that into this painting too. I liked the fuzzy fence in the background being repeated in his eye– kind of a contrast between his wild and wooly mane and living within the confides of his fenced pasture. I ~know~ Ricco likes being domesticated– no wild mountain lions in my backyard 🙂 … but that little bit of wildness that remains in every horse I think is part of their attraction.
