Ok, this is the first time I'm posting anything...been fighting with my @#!*&%! scanner.
This is "My Kingdom", 9" x 12" acrylic on masonite...since we've been into horses lately, thought I'd post this one of my good friend Roger.
Hope it works...

I stroll in the animal forum where I haven't ventured for a long time and wha la! Here is a painting you did! Why oh why didn't you tell me to take a peek when we were in chat? hmmmmm!

I love the way he is standing there checking YOU out!

You'll eventually figure out that @#!*&%! scanner! When you do, give us a closer look, ok?

Warmth,
ReNae

The size is fine, Judy, and this is quite the lovely painting.

I'd put this puppy in my living room, that's for sure!

Hugs!

I really like this painting. I especially like the texture of the horse`s fur and the landscape around the horse. http://www.wetcanvas.com/ubb/biggrin.gif

Excellent!! Want to show this work? The deadline for submissions for the AAEA is May 5th for their Fall Showcase. If you can get a good transparency made, I think I would submit this painting. It would fit right in with the other work that is done by professional Equine Artists. Can;t hurt anything and it is the premeir place to have your work shown in the equine world.

Fantastic piece! Reminds me of the time I saw some wild horses. The stallion was just this kind of watchful. Love the background. I struggle with this type of background. Would love to know what colours you used and how you did the trees!

Hey, thanks for all of your comments...especially fellow horse-nuts! http://www.wetcanvas.com/ubb/biggrin.gif This horse is incredible...lots of spirit, & he comes flying across the fields when he sees me! http://www.wetcanvas.com/ubb/biggrin.gif
And, thank you, pgetha, for the AAEA link, although this piece was sold, so it's out of competition.
Ironhorse, I work with a limited palette...mainly titanium white, yellow ochre, burnt sienna, burnt umber & ultramarine...but I usually have cad yellow, cad red, cobalt & cerulean when I need an extra punch. (Incidentally, the above palette is Robert Bateman's...took some workshops with him). I've found that you can mix virtually any colour with those listed, if you're working with nature subjects. This piece is a study on aerial perspective...as things recede in the distance, they tend to get lighter in value, & bluer, due to atmospheric effects.
In working the trees, (in working anything!) I usually mix about 5 different variances of the same colours that range in value from light to dark,(I work thin with acrylic & water) & then I just go at it, drawing with my paint.
Hope that answers your questions!
