Painting a day 2016-Day 9-After the Rain

After the Rain

After the rain-horse eye

Day 9 of my painting a day challenge brings me to practice a detail or close up of a subject, my Halflinger cross gelding’s eye.  This painting is based on some photos I shot one evening as the sun was setting after a rain.  The lighting was warm and gave his coat even more of a rusty, orange glow.  The colors were very saturated because of the rain and he still had raindrops running down his mane and forelock.
