KEEPING IT LIGHT

KEEPING IT LIGHT

both 6x8" oil on board
Gave myself a challenge this week. Tried to keep these little ones in a high key - meaning nothing darker than a value 7 in artist terms. I was getting heavy handed and dark. I felt just like a joke I heard on the Click and Clack radio show (NPR) - "She's so dense light bends around her." These really did help the ham fisted look I had been using on recent paintings.

  2. Hi, I popped over from Sylvia's blog. These are great and light as you say. The She's so dense brought a smile to me. Your horses have such life and good gesture. Nice work.
