Day 2 progress shot.
There's a lot of reason why I started to learn riding, I like learning new skills, I wanted new challenges outside of work, I also wanted to start painting, but I couldn't find anything I feel engaging enough. I wanted to paint something that excites me, because I will be spending hours and hours painting it, I don't want to end up hating the work after. So I started asking myself what do I like to paint about (back to the question my ceramic prof asked me, 'what do u wanna make art about?'). I like things with motion, I like to study live subjects (except for plants...), so I started taking riding lessons and see if that would inspire me to paint, and surely enough, it did. Been watching a lot of jumping videos, plus from what I learn from riding, I understood what muscles were used when, what does the position looks like when a horse jump, and the position of the rider? The rider also uses a certain muscles as well. How do I translate that on the canvas so my views can understand where the tensions' at when they are engaging with my painting?
