Painting in Oil
What a stunning, beautiful work, Susan!!! I would never have imagined that the greys could be so alive, so vibrant and exciting!Kathryn
I do love the grays in this painting, Kathryn - there really is only a hint of color. I will try this pallet again some time!
Amazing palette ... so much fro so little, how clever. Another stunner.
Many thanks, John - I have been watching the progress on your 4 poster and work shed. You are quite a talented man!
Beautiful, Susan! Reminds me of beach colours. Our former queen used to go horse riding on the beach in the early hours when the beach was still empty.
How interesting - thank you for sharing that with me, Judy!
Hello, Fabulous and realistic painting. The long legs of the lean and strong horse with its mane and tail flying appears to be squeezing out every ounce of its energy to keep galloping at a tremendous speed and the rider trying his utmost to maintain the momentum to cross the winning line in great style. I can see a perfect co ordination between them Best wishes
Many thanks for your kind comment and for taking the time to share your thoughts about this painting with me, Joseph. I greatly appreciate your visit to my blog.

Thank you so much, Michael - glad to hear your shoulder is coming along.
You nailed the movement, Susan. I can hear hoofbeats!
Capturing movement seems to be a passion of mine - thanks, Diana.
I can't believe I missed this post! I'm so glad I saw your comment at Michael Perchard's. Not only is the motion spectacular, but I like the lighting. It made me think of the lighting at the racetrack at night, once a favorite way to spend an evening--till they shut it down and we only had harness racing. I'm a runners fan.
I definitely like the way you paint animals, especially horses. This is wonderful painting that transfers all the emotions of horse and rider.
Your comments are welcome and brighten my day!
