You always capture the life of the horses in your paintings Ruth. I agree with Karen and the shadows are wonderful.

The "Ranch dudes" are great! I love them. Are you painting more than one painting a day?

Ruth Andre said...

Thank-you all for your comments. Painting these horses was a labor of love. i found them at a Dude Ranch in Wickenburg, AZ. They had just come in from a morning ride and were loafing in the sun. Glad you like them too.

I like the way you captured the light hitting the surface of their hair. Great job Ruth!

Love them both! The abstract composition of "Ranch Dudes" is superb!
