A Kind Eye

This was quite a satisfying piece, a commission to paint the eye of a racehorse. I thought it might be interesting to capture the progress as I’ve only started using oil paints again in the last year or so, having abandoned them for acrylic for over a decade. I used to find oils somewhat sluggish and dull, but having developed a lot more patience I am now finding them quite a joy to work with, with many advantages over acrylic.
