I finally have time to work on this little painting which I began quite a long time ago. I’ve been looking at it for at least 6 months and it was bugging me, especially the drawing. The horse was too small for the rider. The horse’s legs were too short. I think I fixed it by working the edges of things, particularly the horse’s legs. I can see I could stand to work a bit more on the rider’s hands. I like the limited palette and the looseness.
