Breed a Week Project-Irish Draught


I have been following the Breed a Week project on Wet Canvas for a couple of weeks. My schedule had been too busy to do anything but lurk! I have been wanting to start and finally found some spare time to submit my first for the project. This week is Irish Draught. I have been painting a lot of Arabians lately, and that was causing me a bit of a problem. Arabians have a very narrow throat latch area, Irish Draughts are much thicker there! So, I had to repaint the throat area, at least 4 times! So, this project will keep me from being in a "rut" and painting in the same style. I am pleased with this first attempt. I can't wait to see how my painting should improve by this time NEXT year!! I will post each week's project and we can check them out together!
