Horse in Front of Gunma Museum of History

Day 9 - Horse in Front of Gunma Museum of History

A giant horse statue standing in front of the Gunma Museum of History (Japan).

Lessons Learned:
I have a tendency to just go in and throw dark and light shadows all over the place creating paintings with indistinguishable light sources (aka they look bad). So, with this one, I tried to block in the obvious blocks of shadow and light, not worrying about the bits of highlight within each value block. This was fun to do that with because it was all one color. Once those blocks are set up, you can add dark and light values relative to the block value. One light, medium and dark hue are not going to cut it for the whole thing.
