Oil on gallery wrapped canvas, 10x8

I started this painting with the intent to use bright and bold colors.  As I started to lay paint, I found myself going to the natural shades of his coat.  He has such wonderful tri color hair, with creamy whites, red oxides and gray pushing to black on his tail - I just had to paint him as he is!  I still want to paint him in bright colors - but I’ll do that another day!  I have been in the watercolors and acrylics these last weeks - and it feels good to be back in the oils!  My brushes need to be cleaned well, as does my palette, before I head to Augusta and the long days of plein air painting!  This painting makes 1189 in 1189 days.
