Oil on 6x6 canvas panel.
This is my contribution to this week's WDE at Wet Canvas. Maureen was the hostess who supplied a lot of great reference photos!
I picked the two young horses...I believe they're called yearlings at this stage. Muz-nuz is my invented word for muzzle nuzzling. A pretty endearing shot.
Developing a background is always an interesting challenge to me. This is one that I hope enhances the mood of the painting in an uplifting, colorful way without competing with the subjects.
Hope ya like it! Comments please...
Matthew 17:20 Because you have so little faith. I tell you the truth, if you have faith as small as a mustard seed, you can say to this mountain, 'Move from here to there' and it will move. Nothing will be impossible for you. "
