Whilst most artists work from left to right I find it much easier to work from right to left. Perhaps that has something to do with my being right handed???
The next step in Ruger's painting is to start on the rider and saddle. The jodhpurs showed a bluish sheen down the outside of the leg which works well as a reflection of the blue background.
After adding colour to the jodhpurs I started working on the saddle adding the suggestion of light and shadow and defining the texture in the saddle cloth.
Hope your enjoying the process of Ruger's painting
