Horse paintings from Australia.

I haven't had time to paint much these past couple of years ( you can always check our website to see where my time is being spent!) but I hope to get back into painting soon.

Here are some by me.

Oh, just realised they are all head paintings - I do paint whole horses as well, for some reason I just grabbed a handful of head portraits.

I did plan to paint today - but we've just finished building more stallion yards and I have five horses to get ready for our state dilute show next week and there is just so much else that must be done... maybe I'll paint next week, or the week after.

Great paintings !!
I totally adore the pally, and a couple of questions.
Do you paint on canvass or on card?
Do you draw them first, and then paint, or just paint away !!
Just wondering (you don't have to say here) but are you from Aus ?

Hi there,
Yes, I'm from Australia - from sunny Queensland (great one day, perfect the next).

I usually paint on canvas, but also board, card and whatever else is at hand. I usually do a light, rough drawing in pencil or light yellow paint on the canvas first, just to outline the head, eyes, nostrils and major bone structure, and then fill in the background, then I paint the horse building up from basic dark and light shadings then doing the details starting around the eyes and working out. I leave the eyes themselves until last.

Beautiful paintings! I can draw, but would love to learn how to paint someday.

I am in love with QLD. I really want to live there somtime. We have a QH mare from up there. I live in Victoria.....All I can say, is don't trust the weather....

I am really interested in painting. I draw quite a bit, and I might post a few pics. They arent the best, because I like drawing at night, and half the time it ends up being finished in bed. Another question I can never decide on it colour ??
Do you copy a pic, or just out of your mind colours ?
