A painted diary

I have started a new project, I am writing a diary, only not with the pen, but with paint.
I will post these small paintings, with a short description, every day on my art-blog.

Splendid! I especially like how you concentrated on the dynamic of the horse, minimizing the nearly stationary left rear leg to emphasize the mane, tail, and legs that are close to the viewer – all of which are in motion as the horse tilts downward.

In short, you’ve depicted what captures the eye, not the camera. Have you done a companion painting of the horse as it rears up?

Susanne, thanks 🙂

Wildstorm, thank you, yes I am quite interested in horses 😉
I love your photo’s

Achelois, 😀

Lat, friesian horses are very nice to paint, and I love long manes 🙂

Solomon, a very good description! No I haven’t done that, but it’s a good idea! I need to keep up the once a day painting! Now I have another subject. 🙂

Aafke, did you know that the first motion studies – the very first movie – was of a horse, not a person? Strange but true!

Yes I know! Muybridge animals in motion. I have the book! Dover made a beautiful reproduction of it, I should do something with that again! Thanks for reminding me!
Keep tuned in, you might see it pop up soon on the daily diary! 🙂
