Let the Juggling Begin!
From this point on, I am trying to balance many factors in the painting. The basic composition is set. The palette is chosen. Essentially, the contrast is set up, but there are many small choices of value (value=dark vs. light) to be made. Plus the colors have to blend, yet let us see differences.
I have put in the sky color and some scribbled foliage in the trees, plus darkened the horse and made him have some red highlights. I also worked in the grass and the paddock path and shadows on both of those areas. Other than those areas, I have not done much painting, but the ball is now rolling!
