This beautiful horse is Jazz and I am painting on 18x14" canvas. Because of the colour of Jazz's coat I will have to take a different approach to this painting compared to coats with a lot of different colours in and I also have to take into account that acrylic is tricky to blend with because of it's fast drying quality. Normally I start by blocking in one main colour and build up from there but because of the transparancy of this colour and lack of many tones, I have included the shadows when blocking in so that when I paint on top, the tonal values are already underneath.
