Beautiful Grey Jumper

I went to Devon Horse Show yesterday and took lots of pictures. Today I am sketching from one of them. I've just posted more photos of this horse and the show on my web log today. I like to sketch right from my computer. Here is my set-up.

After the pencil sketch, I wet the background and "whacked in" juicy paint to indicate trees or something in a mid-value (40 - 60% grey). Now the light horse will be set off from the background. Tune in tomorrow to see how I finished this drawing . . . and more.

Oh, and BTW, I started my sketch with the triangle, circle and square. It worked like a charm.
