Rescue Horse - brown study

Another limited palette painting, this time 50 shades of brown. It is a fine line between creating an atmospheric piece which captures something of the wistful quality I thought I saw in this horse's expression - and creating slurry. A touch of cadmium yellow lifted the piece, I thought. This is larger than normal at 12"x10", oils on board.
