    Arab Colt

    I finally got back to finishing this painting of a friend's beautiful Arab Colt. I thought I might make a series of cards like this for horse lovers.

    Grateful thanks to Nicole Emanuel for her beautiful photo.

    Was that photo a portrait or just a springboard? I'm wondering about the white in the lower legs' white color, whether that's a desirable thing to have it asymmetrical. A portrait is a portrait and you replicate the original. But I rather like the asymmetry of the coloring.


    Anyway, it's a spiffy drawing/painting. Great form. Very naturalistic, and the scratchy background makes it look all the tighter. Good job!!!!!

    Robyn, that is a gorgeous painting - the way you have captured the light is wonderful. I'm sure 'horsey' people or any animal lover would buy these cards.

    Oh God of homeless things, look down
    And try to ease the way
    Of all the little weary paws
    That walk the world
    today.

    Thanks June, it looks like we're going horsey this week, though I did start him a while back!

    I just love your style of painting, Robyn. (Lol re the socks.)

    How do you do the background? I've looked at your gallery and quite a few have that lovely scumbling effect. Very sketchy and illustrative. Do you use a certain brush for that?

    Lovely idea making cards

    love the sense of such accurate anatomy, all the little knees, and angles so well realized but still has the "hand drawn" look that lets out the soul of the young foal. wonderful Robyn
