Horse painting details
This expressive and affordable horse painting measures 11" x 15" and is painted on archival paper.
Medium and Technique used for this painting
Acrylic was the medium of choice. I started with a reject painting- imagine that. It was the end of a session so I used whatever paint was on the palette and mixed it with pure white. Once the shadow areas were in place I added the dark background which helped establish the shape of the horse. To finish, I used pure white acrylic paint for the 'light' areas. Still not satisfied with the texture and overall look, I decided to grab the palette knife and scratch-back into the thick paint. This added some much needed linear interest and helped tie the painting together.
Here are some close-up images so you can appreciate the brushwork. I've included a framed image for display purposes only.
