I paint horses these days. They are beautiful and there are many of them on the pastures here in Colorado. I love the challenge of painting them and capturing the complexity of their muscle tones, and light reflecting off their shiny hair. Today I took a ride to a small town of Laporte - north of Fort Collins and there were hundreds of horses out in the rural part of the city. The light was incredible - there were dark clouds in the background and the sun was shining brightly on the pastures.
One of my favorites so far - done on Ampersand Pastelboard with soft pastels. Can you tell which color is my favorite color? :)
This painting is SOLD.
