Portrait of Flash: New painting step 4

/ Portrait WIP

 

The early stages of painting a conformation portrait of a chestnut horse

With the paint from the previous washes still wet I've started to apply the dark shadows using a mix of burnt sienna and ultramarine then I've applied a halftone right next to it.  I thinned the paint just a little and applied it with a sable brush.
