A Painting To Suit This Frame?!
1 Attachment(s)
My grandfather built this frame for me out of barnwood back at christmas time and i still haven't painted anything to fit into it!
reason being it has to be a vertical painting, of which i have none currently on hand, and i cannot for the life of me think of what would be best to paint to suit it.:shock:

So, do any of you guys have some ideas?
All would be appreciated!

A horse portrait, of course!

lilruffian 03-26-2014 04:28 PM

Yes! But should it be a simple face portrait? something western? with mountains? cattle? dogs?

I'm thinking cow horse and moomoos in the mountains.....just say in ;P

Just the head, no distractions.

I agree with Saddlebag - simple portrait in a minimalistic style with your choice of species acting as model. Remember to post the completed project, please.

Why can't you turn t and use it landscape format?

How big is the frame? If it's smaller, just the head. If it's large, you could do a something more detailed, but I would do just a head portrait.

Thanks guys! It is a 16x20'' frame so not a bad size for any style.
And tinyliny, i could rotate it but i like it better vertical haha. just the way the boards rest on top but again, what do you guys think?

I think boards resting on top would be more appropriate - it gives the vibe of sturdier construction that way.
