I have always like portraits with dark backgrounds so I decided to have a go.

Stage 1. 

A box canvas 10" x 10" with background in black acrylic. I blocked the horse in in acrylics first because they dry quicker and I like to get as much as I can done quickly.

Stage 2.

Once that was dry I refined it all in oils.  It came together quite quickly but now it needs to dry before I can add the finishing touches.
