references- maybe 2 of 11 photos

30x30 oil on linen
You guessed it - right? I never realized how many white horses are out there. What attracted me were the horses in and out of shadows. The sunny day lit up the white ones, while the bay and palomino and the appaloosa( I think) are undefined in the shadows. There is still much to be done on the horses. I discovered the shadowy ones are as tricky to paint as the prominent white horses. This is another example of driving down the road, screeching the car to a halt to turn around and get the photos. Gee, I would have liked to paint on location, but another event was calling. The backdrop wasn't inspiring. We'll see how it turns out. Stay tuned for the finale.
