Equine Light Study

Another study of light on horse. I sketched the horse from memory, and started in on the painting, trying to remember what I learned the other day with Stubbs. I referred back to "Mambrino" to check my accuracy, and adjust things. The shapes are starting to make more sense, and I think there is an element of memorization as far as the lighting landmarks goes - divet here, highlight there. I need to know the anatomy behind it, though, and it will make much more sense.
