Horse Sunset Painting Progress Journal

So my coach's birthday is coming up and I had the idea to paint her a picture, at first I wanted to do a pencil crayon portrait of her horse but I tried and failed, I really didn't like the way it turned out. I wanted to do something alot nicer (i'm really not great at detailing & shadow work)

So I was looking across horse photography, saw a beautiful picture of a horse shadow with a sunset in the back, that continued onto horse sunset photos. I finally found this one & decided I would paint this for her.

I'm thinking about just doing the first horse..but I think it will turn out great!

I'm going to first practice a sunset on paper with acrylic paints, then the whole painting (maybe a bit sloppy) on paper & then when I am happy with it and have had some practice, I will paint it on canvas.

I have decided to create this thread as a journal so I can show all you artists my progress :)) I am by no means a great artist, but I enjoy doing it anyways!

Hope you enjoy,
Bella xo

If you have the horses painted in a really dark silhoette, you can paint the background fully (as if no horses exhisted), then let it dry well, then paint the silhoetted horses right over the oranges/yellows, because a heavy black or brown, if dark enough, will completely cover the background underneath it.

That's a really good tip. Will save you a lot of headache.
