Knight on White Horse - 5th Installment

I am enjoying using gouache instead of transparent watercolors! I feel like I can paint with more dynamic range and contrasts with them. Also they are more forgiving than watercolors because you can paint over spots opaquely. I have gotten a bit weak with my horse anatomy in the back legs and I'll crack open my horse anatomy books to see what I need to do to make them look more convincing. I plan on doing that and then adding some more details to the lower 2/3rds of the knight and adding some suggestions of leaves in the hedge behind the figures. Total time so far, 2 1/2 hrs. I think I can finish this up as a 3 hr. project. :-)
