White Horses in Art and Photography
in Art and Photography
Horse people tend to like putting horses in categories. You have heard them. Who hasn’t heard that ‘chestnut mares’ are of the devil? Or Appaloosas are stubborn? Thoroughbreds are crazy. Ponies are devious? That’s so negative! 🙂 As an artist, I must say I like white horses. I am fortunate enough to have a white (or grey) horse. One of my favorite things to do (besides paint) is to photograph my horses. I have an abundance of horse photos. White horses are fun to paint because you can have lots of fun in the shadows and highlights on their coat.
It seems white horses have captured people’s attention for quite some time.
Here a white horse appears in Revelations in the Second Coming.
The Heavenly Warrior Defeats the Beast
I saw heaven standing open and there before me was a white horse, whose rider is called Faithful and True. With justice he judges and wages war.
And just for clarification, a definition of white horses.
