This is for my sister. The Horse person in the family. 3 layers. Oils. Appx 5400x4000 at 300 ppi. I merged all before finishing touches.
(First image - layers 1&2, before final touch-up.)

Thanks for showing that soft BG first, then the excellent and powerful palette used on the horse and foilage. I really like that technique.................TJ

Fantastically luminous and ethereous. The watercolor style I wish I could learn!

Sky -- This one really shows how using layers can help replicate true- life oils. It is as if you painted it in three sessions with some drying time in between to allow painting over a previously painted area. You have captured the bright sun on snow nicely!
