WIP - Update on the Pronghorn

Work continues on the pronghorn. This is the lastest as of yesterday. I need to finish up his legs and rump area so I can start to overlap the grasses over him. I'm trying to keep the grasses somewhat loose but it still takes many layers of adding darks and lights to make them look right.

Kelly, the blogs I follow are full of works in progress - all of them useful to some degree - but there's something particularly revealing about your latest progress shot when compared to the previous one. I can't wait to see how you develop this painting further, at which point I'll have a valuable reference for my own work, not to mention a standard to aspire to. Thanks!

Kelly, I should probably have said "resource" rather than "reference" in my initial comment. I'm not about to copy your work!

Peter, I understood what you meant! I'm glad that you are finding this WIP helpful.

This is such a beautiful composition, too. It conveys the qualities of rest and energy together.
