Well, happy day, I'm back to painting again after all these months. Here is my horse racing lesson.

Looks great to me Carol,  :yippee:  :yippee: the horse look really well done.

Is the left hand horse and rider supposed to look monochrome? The rest are lovely bright jockey colours but with the one in the left the rider colours match the horse and I wonder if adding some colour to the jockey with help him pop.
Aroha! Lisa :-)

Agreed Carol, a splash of colour on that jockey and you'll be well and away. A bit more variance in value would give you more depth, example would be to darken the colour on the lead horse, the jockey (yellow silks) looks fine.
Very nice work Carol.  :clap: :clap: :clap:
Cheers, Val

Great job on a challenging lesson, Carol - and welcome back to painting - you've been missed! The only suggestion I have is to lift out some color on the horse on the left - he's supposed to be more white than gray - and that will help differentiate him from the jockey...giddyup!
Cheers,
Sharon

Carol, excellent after a long layoff :clap: :clap: :clap: The shading in the grass has to ground at a slope instead of flat ground. The left horse is in the air so the shadow must be lower down. Check the reference photograph and my painting. O0
