Abandoned Boat

Abandoned Boat
Acrylic On Canvas
18 x 24"
     I have wanted to make some paintings with horses in for a while now and got my chance recently on a trip to Goole. There was only one horse in the field with a few ponies, so for this I just used the same horse again from a different angle and changed the pattern on his body.
     This is the first time I have tried to paint a horse and I was quite pleased with the result. What was even harder was the fact that black and white are especially difficult colours to add light and shadow to. I have always struggled particularly with black in this regard but feel I must tackle it as much as I can in order to improve.
