These are the first fired tiles of this pair. (each 8"w X 12"h) ... just came out of the kiln 5/31/07. Now that I started 3-d sculpting, I look at these and think "I could have / should have ... " done them differently. So though these are new, I think the next ones will be better. (at least, that's the plan.. LOL) We raise quarter horses.. so we tend to enjoy their 'peacefull' poses as much as their more animated moments. (I'll post my stallion's 'portrait' sculpture as soon as I get the mane on it)

Hi everyone! Just stopped by WetCanvas this morning and came up with a quick entry for this topic. I'm affraid I missed the word "classical" here:). I hope you don't mind. I called it "Two gypsies". http://www.wetcanvas.com/Community/images/02-Jun-2007/108721-Picture_004.jpg

11x16 Whatman, Neva brand watercolor.

The original photo is here http://www.flickr.com/photos/radonic/398012596/

Two gypsies".

The horse's face is a little too short, so it looks more like a pony than a big horse. I hope you don't minde the sisterly critique :D:thumbsup::heart:

These are other two past horse studies of mine : one is a study on the texture of horse fur http://www.wetcanvas.com/Community/images/03-Jun-2007/77963-P6030057.JPG

the other one is a Halflinger pony


I'm afraid the quality of the photos is quite poor.. taken on a rainy day!

I am considering the horse challenge for June . . . this one I titled "Off Road Vehicle #2 (colored pencil). I did this a couple years ago . . .

This is an ACEO that I just finished. It's oil, 3 1/2"x2 1/2".

Deborah, I really like how you used color on your dressage horse, and the positioning. VERY NICE!

Here is a horse portrait I did recently. The original piece measures 16x20'' and is completed in graphite. The piece was interestingly framed using an oval mat and a frame which looked like saddle material...very appropriate.


...and another : 11x14'' colored pencil on blue strathmore charcoal paper

Here are some sample of my equestrian paintings in oil. I am using MGraham Oil paints on 10oz canvas.

Let me know what everyone thinks.

I painted it on 140 lb arches rough with W&N paints for my dad on fathers day
it is 6x10

Hello, here are three of my horse paintings. Finished in the last couple of weeks. They are all of Gypsy horses.

Hi all. One horse that I felt was exceptional was done by our friend from Hawaii, Gail. (Maunalio)


I am working on a Bison and two cows currently... no horses :) but the best I could do to inspire you is the above link. -Harry

Hi! Here are two watercolor paintings I did with horses for characters of a story I'm working on. I also used some pastels on Kilza and color pencils.

Ok.. I think I've finished with the sculpt. This is my first attempt at a horse portrait - my little stallion, Ranger. The mold isn't made and it's not cast yet.. but I don't know if I'll get that far by the end of June.. so this is my *June* submission.

Thank you Tyree. I'm struggeling with the mold on this. (remember, it's all kind of new to me) ... making bald spots as I pull my hair out.. LOL. I hope I don't mess up the original too badly. ... at least not before I can get a successful mold made.
