Here is a cell phone shot of today's progress. It is progressing more nicely than this photo shows. This is another picture that contains opposing elements. The color scheme is mainly orange and blue, opposites on the color wheel. The brushwork is both soft and crisp. I am not sure if it shows here, but I am enjoying this process.

I am still fussing over the details in Rein In. It's mostly about the tack, I want to get it right. I've been working large most of the year. It is liberating to use big brushes and stand way back from the easel while I am working. The problem with working large is when you make a mistake, such as a color or value problem, it's that much more difficult to correct it. Students, that is why we make a loose study before moving to the final version.
