painting: horses at the stream

speckles and drops 30″x40″

Oh, can I tell you how difficult this one was? Like pulling teeth. I got the horses painted, and then stalled. And stalled. So it sat on my easel for six months. Maybe longer. Mocking me every time I sat down to paint. I wasn’t sure I could carry off the water, and had put so much time into it that I didn’t want to wreck it by trying. Sometimes it just has to be the right day, though. It won’t work one day, and then on another it’s no effort at all.

I think I finished it on the right day. 30″x40″ oil on canvas. Available in my Etsy shop. I painted from a reference photo shared by Gary Odell.
