|Sofie the draft horse, gouache, by James Gurney|
Yesterday at the barn I painted this portrait sketch of Sofie, one of the four Belgian draft horses. She had just gotten her shower in advance of her appearance today at the Dutchess County Fair. I used a limited palette of black, white, ultra blue, raw sienna, and yellow ochre.
The image is the size of a playing card, about 3 x 3.5 inches.
