The Hidden Valley

Ok, so this was the second painting I did using the Flemish technique of oil painting,(following many instructions from this very site) or my version of it. This is a 16x20 canvas and was so time consuming and difficult as I had decided to do four horses, all standing together but each in a different pose and angle , but I learned so much by the time I was finished. I was expecting a total disaster but I ended up loving the results so much that I have vowed never to part with this painting. I know it's not perfect but it definitely represents a turning point for me and took me over four months from start to finish.

No reference photo was used for this painting.
