Wild Horses

Wild Horses began with a sturdy piece of Arches of France paper. I had seen a trio of horses grazing in a wetland area, and the scene was so striking, I decided to paint it. My Great Niece Lee Ann had taken a photo with her phone and passed it along to help me in my new creative endeavor. Throughout the winter I added light layers of acrylic paints to create the scene. I chose warm colors specifically.

I am now adding some purple and violet borders to give the scene a colorful frame. The colors oddly coordinate. I love the shades cast by the wine-colored stripes. I'll see where it goes. You can see how the painting progressed in past blogs.
