Artwork Description

This is another old one only I redid some parts of it. I normally will not go back into a painting once I've finished it but I felt this one could really use some touch ups. It could still use some more but I'm happier with it now. The original version can be seen at my Elfwood site. 9x12 Oil on masonite.

I'm glad you decided to put this one up - it is absolutely awesome! Great oil technique, and just wonderful action.

You sound just like someone I knew some time back. Anyways, thats priority for me now, working on things like that. Thank you for the comment!

The head on the woman seems to be odd, like its needing her neck. Also the body doesn’t flow with the way the animal is moving. It looks unnatural in her posture.
The rest of the work is muck better though, just work on ridding posture.

Excellent dramatic movement, Dan! I so admire oil artwork, and you are master of the medium, This is a lovely fantasy image, nicely detailed (specially the girls garb) and beautifuly coloured!

I really like this, particularly the movement of the rider. It really lends to the feeling of action taking place. You've rendered everything very well here, with nice, tight detail work.

Art at its best.
