    Thanks, I'm glad you like it so far.
    I agree about the oils, the only medium I've ever used, especially on horses.

    Very nice painting Roc. The colour of the horse is spot on. Just wondering if you'd considered painting the hairs on the horses coat to give it a bit more texture and direction. These Mongol ponies were quite hairy beasts!!

    Tony thanks,as far as the hairs on the horse, I probably should, I just don't have the time right now, to many things going on.
