This is my second take at this image. The photo is by AinslieG and was presented to the horse artists on WetCanvas as a challenge to be re-created to the artists whims. I already did this as a pen sketch in my sketchbook, but, thought it would be neat to do in oils too. So, this is it! It is 5"x5" on birch. Check out the ebay listing here;
I love colorful horses! Paints, appaloosas, dun, dilutes, and, roans...there is so much variety and I never get tired of the infinate variations of breed and color! This one is a black and white leopard appaloosa in the sketchbook.
This is a graphite on 8x10 Multimedia Art Board and was drawn for the WetCanvas Horse Breed A Week Project. The project is now going every two weeks instead of weekly.
Jenny Wren was one of the 4 horses my family kept when I was a kid. She was such a character - part demon, part angel! My sisters and I learned so much about horses from this little brown appy-colored shetland pony! This drawing is not being offered for sale as it is staying in the family.
