More details within a day or so..
a bit of closeup as he progressed.
It was a week or so before the mane showed up....
Oh the Mane.... My long ago watercolor mentor Robert E Wood Jr. often quoted his belief that "CREATIVITY" is a winding path to an unknown destination!" He was oh so right on this mane. I was scared...unsure at best... but had to get started.
He ( my White Knight) is ink on cotton... and as you can see he is a much larger than the table on which I'm working. Given that this image only covers the front legs forward, he's pretty close to life size. He's nearing a finished painting here though a light value gray needed in the background. Without that addition we'd have a very flat white on white painting.
