One day I might have to paint Study #1 in pastel. I just love the energy of that piece. Study #3 captures the power and musculature of these wonderful animals. Look closely at Horse Study #4, you can see the braided tail. My horse expert friends correctly surmised this was based on a polo pony. I knew that (really).

Complimentary colors tend to “vibrate” when placed side by side, to produce the illusion of motion. I chose orange paper for this painting in mostly blue. My entire goal with this picture was to achieve a feeling of motion, a lone wolf sprinting across the barren snow.
