Large White Horse Oil Painting, Draw Near

Sharing a series of condensed painting sessions of a recent large equine oil painting of mine.  I thought you might like to see my process.  My art has been described to me as gestural, expressive, vibrant.  As you will see I do the drawing directly on the canvas in paint or sometimes charcoal or chalk.  In this first clip, I have toned the canvas with a background color and am using a rag and a paint brush to lighten up the large areas of the horse’s body to get the general proportions.  I go from there to put in lights and darks and refine the drawing/painting.  This is really my preferred way to paint because I like the energy and freshness of the painting when I work this way.  See what you think.

This painting and others are available at https://www.etsy.com/shop/FreeReinArtStudio


I still have a couple more painting sessions to go so stop by again to see the finished result.  Or visit my Youtube channel here.

If you, are anyone you know, are interested in a pet portrait or painting of your horse, please take a look at my artwork and website. I would love to talk about what you have in mind. I specialize in dogs, cats, horses, horse and rider, pet and owner, farm animal and wildlife paintings. I work from small custom stall signs to Life-Sized!
