Pilot Butte Mustang

I've started another mustang painting, this one from my swing through the Wild Horse Scenic Loop outside of Rock Springs this summer.  This beautiful boy was one of two bachelor stallions I saw, my favorite bay roan color. 

This is the initial drawing/placement.  I then decided I needed to move the horse more to the right and perhaps make him a little smaller to enhance the sweeping motion I was after.

 I may still move the butte over a fraction to the right.  The withers/neck insertion may need to be lowered as well.  My next chore will be to design the brush in the foreground.  That will help decide whether I need to move the butte a fraction to the right for balance.  It all has to work together . . . Stay tuned!
