So many black stallions to paint I have two mustangs one stocky and one very long and stately. I will be working on usinf photo references thanks to Bureau Of Land Management free public domain photos. One is so black he is blue, scarred up pretty bad though so I am leaving out some of those scars from him fighting. The under layers will be done in blues and reds and violets layering on burnt umber and then a chromatic black green shade. I will post when I finish him.

I live in Georgia. And thier a lot of hourses around here. But I don,t see them up close. But I like the top picture the best. Thier is a lady here that paints a lot of hourses. Perhaps she will see this post. And will give you some good advice.
Perfection is what drives an artist.
The inability to achieve perfection is what creates a work of art.

I really like the top one and his eyes look
so gentle. Sometimes when I'm not sure
about a look I start Googling images similar
to what I'm doing for visual reference.
