Description Ive been drawing horses since last 30 years. I always felt a strong need to try to capture their beauty, power and spirit. Just trying to do so is pure bliss. When I look at a horse, I see many things. I see strength and grace. I see an amazing balance of powerful muscle and delicate bone. I see soulful eyes and magnificence.I also see a world of color. Color in horses many different coats. Color in how light and shadow Interact with their coats. And color in their surroundings. Painting with water color allows me to capture horses in a realistic way while still maintaining a painterly look and feel. And it allows me to express their beauty and spirit in vivid colors that are almost pure pigment. I hope my paintings share a bit of this joy with you.
