Horses are tricky

I’ve been painting horses recently, they are difficult to paint and draw but I like the challenge. This small painting used to be much larger but I chopped off the legs due to my inability to capture their movement. Meanwhile I’m working on two other horse paintings and as usual, the more one practices, the easier it gets.

  1. Interesting croping, I would leave just the head, but the colors in the body are very nice to crop.A very wonderful work.

  2. Thanks! I will be cropping it tighter when I frame it, like you, I like the colours. Unfortunately I messed up the legs so I had to crop.
