WIP- Horse Head

Day # 1 I started this painting the way I do most, with a drawing on layout paper and then transferred it to the canvas. I am working in acrylics and its on a 14 x 18 canvas. I concentrated on getting the canvas covered laying in the darks and some midtones.

Day # 2- ok so I decided to switch to oils and at first I was sorry I did but once I got the entire canvas covered in the oils I was really glad. I know from past paintings that when I want a really dark, dark it can take many, many sessions to get it but doing it this way I was able to get dark’s on the second session . I am not sure what direction this is going to take, my original plan was to make the horse entirely in shadow but I may let more detail show. I guess I will decide in the next session or so.
