WIP Finished - Abstract Horses "Day and Night"

30x40 acrylics on canvas finished work in progress by largely identifying two horse shapes then working on background and foreground. A cross appeared on Day, the white horse, so I left it alone, thinking how appropriate it was while Night has none on him.
Two shades of turquoise blue were added while orange red was put close to the center of interest. Just a fun change of pace picking something out of nothing and watching it develop. Now back to watercolor again. This afternoon worked on a donkey painting. I hope you all like it and have a Happy New Year! Today marks 8 years I made a resolution to paint or draw every day and it sure has been interesting!
