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!
