"Finished Wild Horses"


I could have worked on this for another year! (I know I am not the only one that's never satisfied) But I had to stop because it needs to be delivered next Thursday & needs to dry.


This is painted from a reference photo I was provided with, the surface is a portion of a military jet and it will be mounted on a custom-made oak base and encased in glass. I wish I could say more about it, but ........


I wasn't crazy about the Stealth, but it has significance. I really enjoyed painting this, but it was stressful due to the nature of the piece and I am looking forward to painting a 5 x 7 quickie to loosen up! :)

I forgot to mention a couple of real challenges in regard to the reference image. First, the photo was entirely black & white with the exception of the horses & Stealth. Second, the horses all had thier winter coats and there was no definitive light source present and no sheen to thier coats. Thankfully, I grew up around horses & went off memory for muscle placement, bone structure etc...
