Dappled Light Study

I sketched out a  horse head trying to practice dappled light effects. It’s very subtle in the pencil drawing but in the painting I’m working on it will be enhanced by the colors in the painting. I’m pretty excited.. I’m getting closer to starting the actual painting! =) I’ll post a thumbnail of the sketch for the painting later on.

I’m having so much fun drawing horses.. I think perhaps I’ll do a few finished pieces with hroses and see if I can really study their anatomy and get it right.
