I finally took a deep breath and put a bunch of paint on the palette and said "let's do this." Over the next 3 hours I got most of the first layers done. There's a lot of purple & blue in this horse?
Except for the use of Burnt Sienna, all the browns are mixed from RYBG. Trying to limit my use of black, but Paynes Gray with blue seems to make a nice dark vs black. Repositioned the ears as they were pointing off to the sides and back. The client requested this change.
