Finished - and shipped. Hope it gets there soon :) This a paitning for a large mural that is composed of individual paintings by various artists - you can see it here: Le Cadeau Du Cheval - The Horse Gift Mural Mosaic
I was provided with a panel that has a basic color and tonal scheme and I had to create a painting to fit the pattern.
The individual small paintings will be assembled into a giant mural with an equine theme. I don't know what the final mural looks like yet.
I chose an overhead view of a horse because I knew that everyone would be painting horse heads, and horses running, and cowboys, etc, so I wanted something different. I thought an overhead view would be unique and I did it in a more fantastical fashion than I normally paint.
Thanks for your interest, and as always -
