"Ovaro"


This little Paint was painted from a reference photo taken by Judi Zoboll.  Judi has a wonderful artistic eye and when I saw her series of Paint horse photos I really wanted to paint them.  Meeting Judi made for, "A Painting Day".

Je viens de visualiser quelques unes des merveilleuses photos de Judi. Ses talents photographiques sont grands, tout comme les vôtres ma chère. Je serai ravie de voir prochainement l'évolution de votre "Ovaro".
gros bisous

Absolutely beautiful Ruth! I love the light on the horses neck and you painted him with such sensitivity. Just lovely.

Another lovely gem! The white on the horse stands out so beautifully on the neutral background.

Superb one, Ruth....horses do pose quite a challenge with all of their rippling muscles and sinew. You paint them beautifully.

Ruth, this is wonderful, love the lighting on his shoulder, feels warm and sunny, (which has been lacking in our current weather pattern!)
