|"SEA HORSES" 40X60 oil painting on panel|
On a mdf wood panel that is primed with several coats of white gesso paint I started the painting by drawing the horses with a thin wash of blue. I knew that I wanted the horses running in the surf along the top and that I was going to add driftwood and seashells at the bottom.
I then photographed the horses and printed them on paper so that I could try different variations of the driftwood log. I also drew the horses reflection in the water. This was the design I liked and I drew it onto the panel.
There are two sea horses among the shells.
A limited edition giclee print on canvas is planned for this painting.
