Doina,

Good work on the horse .

I think the neck seems a little skinny for the size of the head - maybe I don't know enough about horses.

Still, you did well.

Very nicely done Doina  O0 I'm thinking maybe blend/soften, just a tiny bit, at the base of the neck/body.

Beautiful.  :clap: :clap: :clap:
Cheers, Val

Hello, everybody. :wave:

This is my rendition of Horse portrait lesson.
Horses are my favorite animals, so I was looking forward to this lesson. I followed Dennis and also tried to add different features  from my reference photos (a mane, for example).

 The most important feature for me was the horse's eye. I really liked the way it come out. Dennis mentioned  that with the highlight it looks more photographic but the blue paint didn't go there (probably a small piece of masking fluid left). I didn't want any more correction because I was afraid to spoil the work I satisfied with. So, I left it as is.

:thankyou: Dennis for a great lesson!

:gl2: everybody with your paintings.

All the best. :flowers:
Lidiya.

Lidiya,

Love how you did the horse.  Twinkling eye is perfect. 

Great job.

Lidiya, I must say the eye is beautiful.
The other eye if you will look at the picture does not stand out like that to a point. You need to soften it out so it does not come to such a sharp point. Hope this helps. Keep up the good work.  :clap: :clap:

Awsome horse Lidiya, i like that you have put your own twiste to the horse.  The eyes are nice and glossy, the mane makes it look very nice and i lipke the colour of your horse.  :clap: :clap: :clap:

That eye is great - it looks wet and I like the addition of the mane. Very nice painting.
