Beauty, Strength, and Grace by crystalcookart Beauty, Strength, and Grace by crystalcookart
I love painting white/grey horses in the sunlight because I can go crazy with color. But this is what I really saw in the photo reference (thank you!): [link]
Thanks to LRG photography [link] for the reference photo!
this is 5 x 7 oil on panel

strong image, quite graphical in the blocking of the colours. Looks great, reminds me of art deco almost cubism painting style. The oranges are great, so much energy.

Thanks! I had heard two oil painters say they only use flat brushes and I liked their style so much I decided to give it a try. I think that's what creates the graphic feel. :)

Ooooh, top tip! I get lazy and am too tempted to just stick to what I know... I should experiment more with tools and lack of tools to see what happens. (although right now I should just actually try and do some art at all!).

You have such interesting style of drawing! Very effectively looks! I too would like to try to draw in such style, but it is impossible to me (
