Ms. Fig,

Way to go, girl.  Love his eye.  You had quite a steady hand in doing those reins!

Wonder if some longer hairs around the reins might look better.   I see they are longer on the other side as they hang below the neck.  Or might they all be flipped over to one side?

Fiona, you did a marvelous job on this painting!..It's great.  Don't worry about the 'color'...use your own technique and the colors you have. It's your painting.  It's a great job.

Stunning job with horse Louisa.  May I suggest a few darks in the trees?
