My horsepaintings

Hi,

I learned myself painting in 2005 and have tried to find my own style.

Here are some of my horsepaintings:

Many thanks - a bit different style, I know :)

The large painting took 2 1/2 weeks in total.
4- 5 days for painting and two weeks to prepare.

They are just gorgeous! I love the sense of action in your paintings. Very exciting and technically skilled. You are quite the pro!
