"Skyline Ranch Horses" en plein air
OIl on panel, 11"x14"
From my workshop in Carbondale, Colorado I did the plein air work on this piece in just over an hour. We had little time left to paint when I started this piece but I really wanted to get this one going. I painted very fast and blocked the entire painting in but my horses looked a bit like stick figures. I toned down the background and increased the foreground shadow per the suggestion of our instructor George Strickland. I think the painting came off pretty good considering how fast it was painted.
