The Canadian Horse -plein air

Posted by on Oct 10, 2012 in Blog | No Comments

When I spotted this Canadian Horse with a herd of  Highland Cattle near Bonnechere Caves, I got pregnant with possibilities for paintings. His gleaming black body against the reds and rusts of Fall, and his gentle yet inquisitive temperment made my plein air stay a pleasant one. I spent a lovely day painting him and his buddies. I sometimes like to finish a water colour with black pen and ink which  adds additional textures and interest (I liken it to embroidery stitching) throughout the artwork.
