Breakfast Friends

Acrylic on Canvas, 14" x 10.75"

I finished painting this one today from the reference photo provided by Barb Benik  for the Studio Atelier Challenge. Animals are a lot of fun to paint, especially farm ones. I had always wanted to paint a horse and this challenge forced me to do one. Moreover, barn and pastoral scenes are so pleasing to look at. I started off pretty quickly, but struggled when I got to do the foreground (ground, especially)which gave me problems. I had to force myself to stop because I wasn't getting any better with it.
