Some of My Art

I've been painting horses and cattle for a long time. My art web page is here.

What do you do when you do not like a painting that you have created? This one, for example, I was never happy with it. I did not like the harsh bit, the overextension of the neck, the green color of the background ..... 


You do this ... cover it over with gesso and start again!

Look carefully at what bleed through, the light, the dark, the shades of gray, do you see the small dog?

This was only two coats of gesso. I will be sanding it, then more gesso, then base colour for next painting. If it doesn't work, will just pull the canvas off and mount a new one. I can't see the dog!
