The process for "Family Ties" started last August. I painted the field study early one morning.
Before I begin painting, I always take a couple of quick photos of my subject.
"The White Mare"
This is the field study I did that morning.

Painting "The White Mare"
"Close to Mom"
A small color study.
A value study.
The painting process is one that involves as much authenticity and connection with my subjects as I can get. Through that process, I hope to bring to the viewer as much life and introduction into each piece as I can.
