Three New Forest horses on grass
12" x 10" oil on canvas board
The painting is really done as a small quick exercise. Three horses are shown eating grass by a roadside in this oil painting, painted during late summer 2012. They are taken from a number of photographs of horses captured in the New Forest. A composition was then created in photoshop, joining up the three horses to make one pleasing picture. I enjoyed painting the three horses, in particular the shine on their coats. The brightness of the grass helps to show the form of the brown horses well. Painted on a canvas board sized at 12” x 10”.
