Horse Painting, Small Oil Painting, Daily Painting, "Buckskin Mare" by Carol Schiff, 8x10.1.5" Oil SOLD
I had a request for another horse painting, I have not done many of them, but I also enjoy them. It started with a ride through the valleys of the Blue Ridge Mountains in western North Carolina, where I found several horses grazing. The buckskin was particularly friendly, coming up to the fence to great us and posing for several photographs.
I found it difficult to mix the correct color of this animal, but finally was happy with the results. I used a palette knife in the background of this small oil painting, to create the texture of the grasses in the meadow.
