This is something a little different, an acrylic on gesso board, size 6 by 6 inches. I saw these little Ampersand gesso boards at the art supply store and thought they were so cute, I wonder what I could do with these? ...Along with a visit to the Equine Affaire Horse Expo and so many different horse breeds to see....and this is what I came up with!
It was a cold windy day and I couldn't help but think this draft horse would be a handful to hold on to.
hi Maria, Your horse and boy are wonderful!! Can I make a kind suggestion on the background.. the line of the corner is coming thru the back of the horse. If you move it over to the right it won't distract from your beautiful horse and boy. or if you make the wall flat.. just a suggestion. you do beautiful work.. and truly capture your subjects. Love,DianaReplyDelete
Very cool, Maria! I have only used oils on gessoed masonite, never tried acrylics. Love your painting and the nice, strong colors!ReplyDelete
Wow, Maria, it's great - love how you painted the background, gorgeous colors.ReplyDelete
Wow! Great colors and lighting, and I'm glad you're having fun with the acrylics!ReplyDelete
Thank you everyone, so happy that you like him, the bright colors were fun to play with.ReplyDelete
Diana, I completely see what you mean, with the corner of the wall being distracting, I am a little weak in the composition part of my art journey, but I am so glad that you pointed it out.
I learn so much from all of you! Pointers are always welcome and appreciated.
WOW what a striking piece! such wonderful bold colours and brushstrokes, very well done!:) JulesReplyDelete
