Painting Adventures in Austin, Texas
Still loving the colors and energy and flow. Did our discussion today about background and sky have any influence on the changes you made? It's an interesting choice that makes the subject a lot more powerful in my opinion. Cool!
If we discussed that I forgot, lol. But I give credit to my painter friend Greg Little who left a comment suggesting I lose the woods and make it mostly sky instead so the horses would be more set off. I liked the idea and decided to try it. I think it's happier-looking than it was before. Glad you like it!
Hi Camille, I really like the choice you made about the background, though what you had before was nice too. It's looking great! I'm really looking forward to seeing what you do with the wigheads!
Camille, I really enjoyed reading through your progress on this and your comments around the ongoing process. What I really like about the final result is the sculptural qualities - and now I am reading in your profile at the side that you did study sculpture. The way you have really lightened the sky to show off the horses heads is great. As to colour I think that strip of green behind the horses legs is magic. For me it just unifies the whole thing.
I love this...it reminds me a little of Franz Marc of the German movement "Der Blaue Reiter" from the beginning of the 20th century which included some visually powerful paintings. Awesome!
Edward, I was able to finally get started on my KJ one this afternoon, I'm having fun with it. :) You know they're posted now (Saturday night) - Karin got her internet back, yay!Sheila, I'm thrilled that you got a sculptural sense from this. I do love those ropey forms of their leg muscles. I actually wanted to make that backside bigger than I did, like my favorite Toulouse-Lautrec I saw recently. Thank you so much for your input here, I admire your landscapes sooo very much.Paula, what you said was so interesting that I Googled it so I could pretend to already know about the Blue Riders school of Germany from 1911-14. But my conscience wouldn't let me get away with it. Anyway, now I know about it! Just don't ask me to expound, I think it's already leaving my short term memory... But cool, thanks for that ref, I'm always happy to be compared to anyone notable (except Charles Manson, Hitler, etc.).Hope to be back soon with my wig painting for Karin Jurick's blog. Thanks again, very nice people!
ha! ha! ha ! Your funny Camille with the response you gave Paula.First I have to apologize for not adding myself sooner to your followers because I've been missing all this progress work you've been doing.Your horses are such playful beauties , I love their movement and attitudes.I haven't started KJ piece yet either, I can't say I like the subject much., but will try.Thank you for your lovely comment on my blog
Hi Camille, I see you've been busy since the last time I visited. I really like your final result, and hats off for the effort you put in to get to here. The composition works and the colours you chose are beautiful.
Hi Camille - I like the decision to simplify the background - the ultra-artistic outcome is nice and it gives that blue highlight a place from which it came on the horses! Wowee zowie!
Camille, I love this painting! Your choice of colors is always such an inspiration to me. I hope you're having fun with your DSFDF wiggies!
It's so nice to local Dallas Artists' artwork. Thanks for sharing
