Horsing Around with Color
I've been wanting to try an abstract equine painting for sometime. Horses are one of my favorite subjects. When they are moving they have instant energy. If you like to draw or paint horses, you know they are a fascinating and complex shape. As much as I love to paint them, they can be challenging.
My other goal in this painting was to keep it fairly high key and chromatic. In particular, I wanted to try painting each horse a different color without losing the cohesiveness of the shape. Not a bad start, but I look forward to working on it more tomorrow.
Happy painting, Beth
