Another overpainted composition from an abandoned painting. Can you tell there is a horse under this one?
With a vertical composition and a blue-dominant palette, this one is very different from my first painting in this series.
I used windsor blue, (green shade), manganese blue, cobalt blue, and ultramarine blue, accented with rose madder, alizarine crimson, aureolin, and small amounts of copper, gold, and transparent metallics. Negative painting creates passages of light, and dark value scumbling gives punch.
