Gina, the buckskin Quarter Horse from British Columbia returns as my model again. This time I’ve captured her in action during her dressage schooling with trainer Jessica Kellner. As I was planning this painting, I hoped to create some drama where I could play with movement in the paint. I was also envisioning a luminous glow from her unique buckskin colour. I tweaked my palette by simplifying my paint selection down to an analogous scheme of 5 colours; Yellow Green, Cad Yellow light, Raw Sienna, Brown Madder & Quinacridone Red light. Phthalo Blue acts as a contrasting complementary colour to add interest.
