Oil painting: chestnut Pegasus

Oil paint on A3 paper.

This one took a while, I am not yet skilled enough with oil paint to use it fast or economically. The front body of the horse took phenomenal amounts of reworking, but I got in the hang of it by the end. I use photos of eagle wings for reference for his wings and I painted his coat chestnut, because I am tired of white horses with wings. Overall a nice, well-executed piece, if a little generic in style and subject matter.

On another note, I am starting to weary of painting from photographs, it feels very amateurish.
