Chinese style paintings of horses. Different!

After doing a ton of super realistic portraits where I tried so hard to be careful, I wanted to go back and do some work where I am NOT being careful but am working to get the "essense" of the feeling, over the accuracy. I use Sumi ink that I grind from a block and add water, and use very fragile Japanese calligraphy paper. It absorbs the ink very quickly , so one cannot linger with the brush in one spot while they think or look at the model/photo for accuracy. You just have to put the brush to the paper and GO! And try to capture the essence of the movement.

I did some from pictures that I pulled off of this forum
(atttn Dressage Belle , New Image, Equiniphile, Klassic Superstar) and did some just out of my head. I will post just a few here because it takes up too much room. If you want to see the whole set, go to:

Chinese horses in ink pictures by tinyliny4 - Photobucket

If you want to buy one, PM me. I can finish it on good paper (adhearing it to a stronger paper) and maybe use some interesting accents. We'll talk.

Ok, here we go . . . .

Corino, I didn't see any pics of Froggy on your profile. Send me an action shot. Must be ACTION!

Oh, Froggy isn't great for action...LOL

Hold on, I have a few action shots of my former horse that might look good...

Here should be a few for you to play with. I'll need to work Froggy into a froth to get any kind of action shot...he can be a bit lazy...Nico was not!

They are amazing. I love how free they are - must have been fun to be able to relax and end up with such a superb picture
