Mare and Colt

by Gladys Jimenez

I am self-taught artist and find your web site pages amazing as it's all new to me. In my painting I didn't prime, or layered my paintings, but will start following your teachings. I did this painting using oils. It took me a weekend to paint. I used a canvas wrapped on board. Just oils from the tube, nothing else was added. I would love to take painting lessons and become a full time artist :)

Karakum

Horse Portrait, Karakum

Horse Portrait, Karakum

This painting is of a beautiful horse named Karakum. He lived in Vienna, and I fell in love with him as soon as I saw his picture. His owner gave me permission to paint him twice. This second painting was in remembrance of Karakum, as he died 1 year ago. So this is truly in loving memory of Karakum. This is the second painting.

"Roan Barbary". Canvas. Oil. 24"x30"

"Roan Barbary" horse portrait

Hello everyone! My name is Elena.I never received any formal art training, never even attending a class on artistic composition. I was anxious to learn and I studied in the evenings on the basics of painting, drawing, and composition from helpful sites I visited on the internet. To this day, I still study and I feel that achieving my goal of being a genuine artist will require that I continuously study all of my life.

ROAN BARBARY: This is the name of King Richard II's favorite horse. "When Bolingbroke rode on Roan Barbary, That horse that thou so often hast bestrid." Shakespeare: Richard II., v. 5. Roan means "reddish-brown." Barbary means "foreign lands," from Latin barbarus, meaning "barbarous," possibly ultimately from Greek barbar, a word used to describe the sound of the unintelligible speech of foreigners.

Something Different
by: jERRY

Being that I live in the desert and a lot if not all westerns are filmed in the desert, the green background seems a little weird to me with a horse. You have talent, and it shows... Nice work! I look forword to seeing more.
