Mare and foal

oil painting of a mare and foal
An exercise in managing my values. Painted a bit larger at 10" x 12" than I usually do for a 'daily' painting, but tricky even so. I don't think I could have pulled it off any smaller. A limited palette of orange, blue and white. The dark is blue and orange (complementary colours) mixed together with a touch of ivory black for eyes.
