Finished "Back to the Shed Row" Delaware Ohio

"Back to the Shed Row"
Ok I have finished my last painting of the horse returning to his stall after his race.  I was a little disappointed in that I lost his mane to the dark background and I had to add a little white to the mane to make it stand off the dark stall, after all the mane in the sunlight was what I liked most about the picture!
Hope you like it, I would love some input, pointers.
Thanks for looking!


  1. I don't know that I would've done anything differently. I think the mane stands out and holds it's own nicely. This is a very nice piece Maria. Thanks for sharing.

  2. Thank you Gretchen, the horses are so much fun to work on. I really like the painting of your childhood horse on your blog, cant wait to see what you work on next, Maria

  3. Maria, thanks for visiting and commenting on my blog. This is lovely piece...horses are always so challenging , but you have handled it so well. happy painting!

  4. Thank you Julie, I find it motivating to share my paintings and view others' work on the blogs, keeps me running back to the paint brushes to try just one more thing! I look forward to your next piece, I enjoyed your paintings of Italy as well.
