Sunshine II

Sunshine II, 24 x 24

If this horse looks familiar, you probably saw "Sunshine," which I'm reposting below, and which was first posted back in August. Both of these were done with pallet knives, from photos I had taken a few years ago. Since the first one had been my only pallet knife painting to date, I decided to do a companion piece.

Now that these are finished, I'll be sticking with brushes for awhile. They were fun, but I'd like to take a class on the genre before doing more.

Very nice and I bet very impressive when seen in person at that large size. I especially like the dappled light on the horse stall and the handling of the cast shadow.

Love Sunshine! Angela commented on the same things I like so much in this painting...the blue shadow on his blaze next to that wonderful red and the dappled shadow on the wall. Great detail to accomplish with a knife! I'm sure they look amazing side by side and I really like the off center, tilted cropping.

Sunshine looks like he enjoyed posing!
Beautiful paintings!
