Race horse sketch w pencil drawing by Gloria Poole of Missouri and Georgia:Updates

Race horse sketch by Gloria Poole / Gloria / gloriapoole / artist-gloriapoole  of Missouri 23 June 2014 as it looks finished painted second time with acrylics.  It is the same sketch that began as the pencil drawing below, and this acrylic version is the 4th iteration of it. I removed the crowd from the news photo [not the actual photo, just as I drew it] and I painted in trees in background so race course would look like in rural land, and I changed the colors of the jockey shirt and cap and the number of the horse and jockey. I did this in 'steps" of creating the final sketch so that viewers can see the process I often use. I often do this same process but I usually only photograph the final version, of it when i consider it finished. Also, I painted over my original in pencil signature and signed it again . I made the background of blue grass since a famous horse race is run in Kentucky the blue grass state and their grass does look blue from distance. I have sketched other horses [about 12-13 times} and I put the sketches on various blogs, including https://mini-exhibition.blogspot.com and some on http://gloriapoole1749.wordpress.com; and some on https://gloriapoole.blogspot.com, and maybe other blogs of mine also.

Sometimes I paint with a brush without drawing or sketching it first, but usually that is when I have sketched something [a particular subject ] enough times to be very familiar with it. See the pencil drawing below and also the underpaintings times 2 in watercolors.

Update 2 23 June 2014 at 8:04 am by me Gloria Poole to add underpainting #2 to this post. As you see from comparing these photos of the same sketch at various stages of progress, you see that I am correcting the proportions some and developing the background. This version is in watercolors still as the proportions of the horse are still not quite accurate, and the horse's head is not correct either. I will continue to make corrections to this and then re-paint it in acrylic [which is a more permanent medium. ]. Also, you see that I am gradually adding background to it, trying to decide how I want the finished version to look.  I am putting this as it develops because some cyber-criminals who stole some of the photos I photographed of genre scenes and of  art I created, tried to fool other people with them telling them they were theirs. Criminals stealing via the internet are common ordinary thieves and nothing special about them.  I am not talking about "fair use doctrine" of copyright. I do not object to people quoting me and recognize my right to also do that. I am talking about those who consistently steal original art to use it to steal emails and domains and set up fake facebook pages to steal someone's identity.  Read other update and original post below this paragraph for better understanding. 

Update at 3:46pm. The second sketch is the underpainting of the above pencil drawing. When I try to enlarge it to larger  size the criminals at remote who break into my acct try to move the photo to different place.  I painted the underpainting in watercolors this after noon trying to decide how I wanted it to look.  It may not look at all like this when I re-paint it in acrylics. 

I, Gloria Poole, drew this sketch from a news photo and I wrote in my notes to myself so when I paint it, I will have authentic looking backgrounds.  I usually draw in ink or pencil what I intend to paint, but not always. Some times I just pick up brush and start painting on blank canvas.  I also signed this but will re- sign it when I paint it.  This is 14 x 17 sketch book and is fastened to my portable drawing board.  This is graphite drawing pencil so you have to look close to see it. Since I paint over it, I usually draw in light lines that won't be visible in painting. 

      I am putting the drawing first because a lot of people at remote locations [cyber-criminals and criminal stalkers]  stole photos that I photographed of art I created since 2006 to use those to steal domains and emails that belonged to me.  I wrote quite a bit about that recently on these blogs of mine:

And I tweeted to the @FBI on one of my twitter accts @gloriapoole to ask for help removing cybercriminal-stalker-thugs from any and all accounts of mine on web.  Some of those cybercriminal stalkers broke into my landline telephone when I was on a phone call to a person who has a T-Mobile cell phone, and they inserted malware to disable the receiver [they malware into the audio] on the phone [but not the speakerphone on it] and I suppose they thought that would force me to call outloud any bank card numbers. It won't.  Those cyber-criminals who have a telephone number ending in 03 also hijacked a gmail account of mine, and tried to hijack my blog https://mini-exhibition.blogspot.com.  These are not the only blogs I have and not the only way I display art I create or photographs I photograph on the web. I have online albums that showcase my art and photos at:
and also another live account set of albums, another flickr account album, and several albums on both of my Picasa albums' monikers [my name and as written gloria0817].
Also, for the record, I am a white, single again woman and Christian, U S citizen, mother of two grown daughters who are jennifer and leigh; an author, poet, artist in all mediums and a Registered Nurse licensed in Missouri [and for most of my life in state of Georgia also].
