This is a painting that just amazed me !…I was looking to try something a little different and began to play with charcoal, pastel, water and pastel paper.
what happened next I’m not sure…I know I wasn’t getting anywhere and then spotted a bottle of Atelier Free Flow paint, which is runny paint for fine work! I just started seeing what would happen on pastel paper and then got the black paper out and BAM!! … this evolved! So so happy with it!
The painting is on thick pastel paper that feels like sandpaper and measures 50cmx70cm The image I used as reference was from a lovely lady in USA called Lynn Gennrich who posted it on a Facebook page called ‘Art of Horse”. The horse is ‘Ben Hur De Bernaville’ a stunning French Boulonnais or french draft horse.
It has a beautiful big frame on and is under glass. the overall measurement, including the frame is 90cm high x 69cm wide.
