I have started taking painting lessons to "brush up" on my skills, since I haven't painted in over a year.  These are some of my "practice" exercises. They were each completed in about three hours.

Self portrait done in a "wipe out" technique using greenish umber.
Still life of different metals.
Pumpkin still life
My first try at a horse portrait.  This one is done in the "loose" style of Carolyn Anderson.  It is a Mangalarga Marchador stallion.
