a fox hunt

I've been working on a painting of a fox hunt but I got side-tracked doing studies of a guy in a red coat.

Tomorrow night ought to be more profitable as far as the finished piece goes.




_______________________________________

I'm wanting to do this almost as a portrait. Below is the watercolor thumbnails. The little orange blob underneath the horse is a sleeping fox. Or will be.

I saw a painting of a guy on a horse in an antique shop in NC a few months back and was struck by the color, the composition, and the mostly serene look of the guy on the horse.


I also spent some time this evening going over two of my stories, Alexander and Rex and Peter, Peter. Addressing the good and the bad. Assessing what might still be useful.

This sounds like it's going to be cool. The red-suited guy looks splendidly early 1800's. A good piece to herald the beginning of fall.
Keep it up! Will
