"For the Roses", Equine Painters Challenge

Worked on this 8 by 10 inch watercolor, titled "For The Roses", in honor of the running of the Kentucky Derby.  The reference photo was taken by Juliet Harrison, she has posted some of her photos on a blog and allowed use for painting, how wonderful!  She is an amazing photographer and I can't wait to try another!


  1. I love this, Maria- your horses are amazing!

  2. Wow Maria! You really know how to catch the movement in this! Great job!

  3. Thank you, I tried to pull the eye forward with the movement, so happy you noticed! I softened some of my white highlights so they weren't so line like after I posted, I liked that better!
