O.K Golightly, more horses!!
These are sketches that I did on the weekend to "warm up" for the horse paintings that I am working on for a horse event that I am showing my art at in June. I used just 2 colours and white (ultramarine blue and burnt sienna), so that I wouldn't be bogged down by thinking about colour too much.
The event is Polo for Heart which takes place in Richmond Hill, Ontario, June 19,20th and 21st.. This is their 30th Anniversary, and they raise money for the Heart and Stroke Foundation. This is the first year they are having an Art Walk and there will be around 12 artists participating. I am hoping to get some horse portrait commissions, so I think it will be a great audience! Here's hoping for great weather!!
