This painting isn't going as well as the last one but then each painting is always different. The background is in the process of change and as you can see the subjects are all being reformed as well. I'm not in any hurry with this painting simply because it is all a learning process. Sure, I may keep repeating the same mistakes but I am seriously trying not to.
I'm not great with perspective so need to look at the figures that will be in the background to see if they look like they fit. In the reference photo, there are horse trailers in the background and two figures are just behind the horse and rider. I removed those as I wanted the focus to be on the action.
