Being Painterly

Here is a new horse painting I just finished today. This painting was different for me because I was determined to avoid getting anal about detail on this one. I forced myself to use brushes that are uncomfortably large for me so I was unable to focus too much on fine detail. This enabled me to focus more on brush strokes, color, and lighting. It was a bit of an experiment.

Here is a close up of the shoulder area so you can see the brush strokes better.

What do you think of the results of my experiment?

I like the natural brush stroke look, I think I prefer it than fighting for perfection in detail. The beautiful amber back lighting really sets the tone for this piece too.
