HORSES, part 2

Group, 6x8 oil on prepared board $95
As promised, here is the finished study of horses around the hay bale. I might tweak the ears, and give the resting foal on the right a real head, but it's otherwise finished as a study. I find horses and cows arrange themselves in a nice abstract pattern if I pay attention. Like dots an dashes in Morse code.......

  1. Beautiful painting, Robin!

    It looks like the panel is pretty heavily textured before you start painting - I'm curious what you use for that? It adds a nice touch, and another layer of interest to the work.
