looking in the dark

Turpentine: playing with images – looking for a new painting to do. It seems harder these days but the solution to that is probably to make more use of photography. The photo below is little more than a merge of a previous couple of sketches posted here about a month back.
The contrast is realistically low here, its far better to build up from a narrow range of tones and expand outwards.
It only needed a single brush, a cheap No.8 round with very soft bristles, though it does have a good point to it.
 
I have ot say there are things I don’t like about the picture, that figure on the right will have to go – a quick wipe with a rag soaked in spirit will get it off. Perhaps the horse can step in.
