Cool Down, Horse, impressionism, Daily Painting
9 x12 inches
Acrylic on hardboard
I have worked on this painting a little every day this week. I have had so many interruptions that I wasn't sure I would ever finish it! Got up early this morning and stole a couple of hours. Smile.
I was studying the effects of the light and of the wind, and kept trying to show both. Florida gets miserably hot, and then the wind picks up and the rain clouds roll in. The animals head to the barn. But just before the sun hides behind the clouds there is a wonderful array of contrast on everything. That is what I was trying for, but I didn't capture it until this morning.
