|Equine #5 / oil on gessoed cardboard / 15x11|
Another quick oil sketch of equine power and motion. I am happy with this one for some reason :). I am resorting to numbering these studies rather than naming them as they have been coming fast and furious hence this is Equine #5.
Fun to be the first to comment Susan!ReplyDelete
I am happy that you are happy with this piece! I am thrilled with it!
Your paintings are always well done and bring great joy!
I love the movement in all your works. This piece, # 5, rocks the house!
I am glad you are feeling so psyched to be making art "fast and furious!"
I keep a Paul Gauguin quote posted on my studio wall, along side many others, and your words today reminded me of it! "Go on working, freely, and furiously, and you will make progress!"
In your case, progress plus great art!
Thank you for your grand enthusiasm, Michael - your comments always leave me smiling. And I also thank you for the Gauguin quote. I have printed it out and now have it posted in my studio as well!Delete
Love this one too Susan...reminds me of my Tara when Spring arrived and she got out after being couped up during the winter months. Wonderful :)ReplyDelete
It is a pose of pure, unfettered freedom and joy!Delete
Another miracle in paint - you just get better and better. Awesome!ReplyDelete
Your words give me inspiration and make me rush to pick up my brush, Julie - thank you.Delete
this is my highlight every morning to see your new beautyful paintings, thank you!ReplyDelete
What a nice thing to say - thank you, Maike.Delete
They are amazing - all of them! the power and movement in this is startling! So, so clever! :))ReplyDelete
Thanks, Sandra - I am still experimenting with trying to capture those qualities - power and motion! This one brought me closer to what I am trying to do! :)Delete
BRAVO!! This really does have so much power and movement, Susan!ReplyDelete
Wow - thank you, Kathryn! I think I got a wee bit closer to what I have been trying to capture with this one!Delete
Many thanks, Celeste - I greatly appreciate your comment!Delete
Wow, Susan, I can't keep up with you :0)ReplyDelete
The portraiture below is beautiful ... but these horses are something else! They put me in mind of those classical ceiling paintings that have always held me mesmerised. There is so much latent power about to explode!!
Between portrait class and these equine studies I have been fairly busy. I am glad to hear you are feeling better, John, and am closely watching the progress of both the Susan Constant and the 4 poster!Delete
