Horsemotions II, 10" x 8", Oil on canvas board, 2009

This is my second horse in this current series. This one was painted in Alla prima style.





I love their delicate movements and here I have tried to capture one of those delicate moments. This one was caught having lunch!

I have used 6 colours (Lemon yellow, Cadmium yellow, Cadmium red, Alizarin Crimson, Ultramarine Blue and Cerulean blue)-which make a warm and cold of each primary and white for this painting.

Wha..the... you paint with oil with such a style of the Masters.

This is terrific/awesome/beautiful.

Love your treatment of light and the way you were able to render the strength and bulk of this beast!
