I finally finished my painting of love a man and woman entwined in a loving embrace, surrounded by camellias, I painted camellias as currently I have some flowering at the window . It is a palette knife oil painting so heavily textured.
Using Karen Broemmelsick's wonderful photographs as a reference I have painted these two pictures of a grey horse. I love the light streaming in and the colours it creates on the horses coat. Painting the horse from different angles really shows the lighting off 18" x 14" Oil on canvas, prints will be available from this website
I have a great love of painting horses so I thought I may do a series of thoroughbreds painted in oils all different colours but on a similar basic background so the focus is on the horse. I paint in layers building up the colour and depth until I am happy with it, if you look at the the two images below you can see the progress in the second painting. I will paint a third and maybe fourth layer...
All the paintings below have been created with a palette knife, I decided I wanted to try something to loosen up my style, thought why not give the palette knife a go. I highly recommend it, it does use a great deal of paint but the results are excellent, give it a go I think you will be surprised.
Inspired by my previous painting Time Flies, "Make a wish" epitomises long hot sunny days in a meadow.
