Art in progress, day three

I have painted the horse in just the two colours, mixing black and white together.
I am a great believer in keeping everything simple.
My aim is to cover the whole canvas in a type of monochrome and only then will I add other colours.
In my other blog I have linked my painting and poetry together, the classical artists of the past believed there was a link between the two.
I try to paint poetry and write pictures they should both tell a story.
The truth is always beautiful
And beauty always truthful
“It’s a horse Jim, but not as we know it”

I can't say anything until it's finished, but the development is really good.

I like your subject matter. Horses are very interesting creatures and lovely to draw and paint.

Thanks for visiting my blog.

I enjoy seeing your process and your progress.

What beautiful work and it 'simply' grew out of the canvas.
