Another learning point

I have been going to a weekly painting class. This time I was encouraged to take a pencil sketch  and looking at the values and tones paint the picture in colour. I chose this picture of a horse. I loved the sketch, as it had caught the movement of the animal, and the grace as well! I enjoyed the experience and see the value of actually sketching a picture in pencil, working out the lights and darks, the values  and tones and then paint it in colour.
