Painting Horses

January 6, 2015

I like to work several horse paintings at a time.  Using gessoed 300lb. paper (usually Arches)
I draw the figures with charcoal - very much as gestures.  Hoping to keep the movement and
abstract quality of the shapes, I move from one to the next with gallons of latex paint.  Several
shades of blue, from midnight to lavender, I work quickly, leaving some of the gesso, charcoal
and allowing drips of paint to splatter where they will.  It is an exercise in balance - letting go
and controlling the image spontaneously.
