Well, for me it's day #4 in the Painting a Day challenge because, as usual, I'm running behind. Maybe I'll catch up tomorrow...in the meantime, this painting, titled "Eye on the Prize" is in acrylics, on a 3" x 3" canvas. I started out trying to fit the entire horse's head on the canvas, but again, I gradually made the image bigger, focusing more on the horse's eye. I made several attempts to correct the size, but kept making the image bigger, until I finally quit struggling and let the painting go where "it" wanted to. I actually like this composition, and as I painted, I realized that my recent discovery of Zentangles (R) was playing a role here because I was focusing more on the shapes rather than the horse itself. Next time, I might even make the shapes more defined, creating a real abstraction. That, for me, would be wonderful as I have always had difficulty painting abstracts. I always try to make them look like something. So we'll see how it goes! Check back tomorrow!
