Belgian Scribble

Wow, I haven't worked in Painter in awhile now, and I MISS it! I scribbled out this Belgian horse tonight...felt compelled to paint something loose and oily, after a day of precise rendering. I probably should've left this drawing even chunkier.

As a horse-dork side note, I find it interested that the European version of the Belgian draught horse has this dark reddish brown coloring, with black points, while we recognize Belgians as blonde here in America. My conformation in the drawing isn't very Belgian-like...much more Percheron, but oh well...my heavy horses are always a little too tall, I think. I'll have to make a point to make the next one short and stout.
