pintos in the grass

Part of a commission I worked on today – a single file of 5 horses headed downhill, in front of (or under?) a sunset. The sunset was fun! I dyed silk organza in six different shades of pink, yellow and orange, and then experimented with layering them in different orders. I twas startled at how much difference the order made, especially the top two colors. The end result is a little garish; I may have to tone it down somehow.
