Painting in Oil
I just love the perspective of this. The power and movement you've conveyed is amazing! :0)
I have done a composition similar to this before - but this one is more daring.
Many thanks, Aase. Your comment is greatly appreciated.
Wat een actie, maar ook de achtergrond vind ik mooi !Beste wensen voor de feestdagen.groetjes,Simonne
Thank you ,Simmone - the hard part for me was the landscape.
Fantastic POV: the perspective draws one straight into the action ...a call for harnessing the imagination and then giving it free rein on the canvas ... brilliant!!Great to see the ballerinas back in the saddle too! Great work, if I might say so.
Thanks, John - so many decisions in this painting. I appreciate your thoughts.
At first, I thought "why". Then, the more I looked at the painting, the more I could see the intensity, power, great movement - and I understand why this would have been so emotionally draining. It is an incredibly strong painting, Susan. I find my eye torn between the large image of the foreground, and the horse on the far right, with his tail in the air. I LOVE it!!!
You are right, Kathryn - I think maintaining all those things that you mention with each brush stroke, each color choice, each value decision on that large of a canvas takes so much concentration. I didn't realize how exhausted I was until the painting said to me - "Stop now". It makes me h appy that you love it :)!
Your comments are welcome and brighten my day!
