Blue Horse in Sunlight

My painting friends and I headed to Wallsburg to do some Plein Air painting late last summer. There ended up being some scattered showers, and we spent some time driving around taking photos before we were able to paint. One location was really intriguing to me. The way the light was hitting the trees, and the backlit horse eating in the field. I knew I wanted to paint this scene, but the challenge would be getting the lighting right. I worked it and reworked it, trying to get the colors, values, and lighting correct. Being able to paint a horse blue was an added bonus, and a lot of fun.
