It took me a while to come up with the right colours for the background. At first I thought I’ll use a darkish brown and black to make it a warm painting. But then I thought about the vibe I wanted to create. It is a fierce horse, something to be afraid of, but also to make you curious about it. So I chose a dark blue and mixed it with black. The background colour also has influence on the colour I will be using for the Friesian horse. You’ll see!
