Spring Foal

8" x 10" oil on board

This paint sketch was done from a reference photo supplied by Lee Brown's blog, A Day Not Wasted.  Though it was November's challenge, Lee kindly allowed me to use it in February!
I'm not sure if I have painted horses before but like every other painting it's about finding the lights, darks and color shapes.  The foal was a little challenging only because it kept looking like a Great Dane...ha!


  1. He certainly lost any doggy demeanor he may have possessed. He looks ready to bounce forth and seems as fresh and new as spring itself.


Thank you for taking the time to comment, I appreciate each and every one of them!
