After yesterday’s early morning plein air session I was pumped up to go out again in the evening, this time to the Wagner Farm Museum grounds. These two white draft horses were running back and forth, enjoying the grass and the sunset. With the glowing light, it’s easy to use too much yellow. I’ve noticed that in the past. Many things to work on.

Edit: after I posted I remembered a recent visitor’s comment about how forgiving oil paint is. If you don’t like it, scrap it off! So I took some of the yellow out of the sky, quieted down the line of trees and reposted. I’ll put the old photo of the painting below. Which one is better?
