Steer Wrestling WIP
I've begun another acrylic painting by toning the panel with cerulean blue and burnt sienna and starting a charcoal sketch of the horse on the panel. I'm not a great sketcher so it mean placing strokes, correcting and trying to keep the measurements in proportion. Thank goodness for dampened q-tips to remove the charcoal In doing paintings of figures and animals I am stepping outside my comfort zone, which is a very good thing. Now, to correcting the nostril area and begin measuring the chest and leg areas. Just think the steer still has to be sketched as does the cowboy. What fun!
