Large equestrian portrait

Just to see if I can do it!
Here's some progress shots on the big horse painting I've been working on in the studio

1.25m x 1.65m, oils on linen

First the red oxide tint to the linen, then I begun working up the muscle shapes and defining the form.

After that the fun begins - hours of painting through the sheen on the coat.

Finally the background is in and it's time to let it dry before multiple glazing coats. It looks finished but this is only half way!
