Artwork Description

I had been working on this painting for a long time. Sometimes I just wasn't in the right frame of mind to work on it. I wanted the colour of the sky to really stand out, but without it looking tacky. I'm happy with the result.

Hey, thanks, Andree! Yes, there is a lot of ordinary horsey art out there, so I really wanted to do something different. I'm glad you approve. Smile

Horses don't usually catch my attention but this one did! It's just beautiful!

What a fantastic sky. Excellent contrast. It doesn't look tacky at all.

Wow, what a lovely compliment. It's comments like these that make my day, and keep my inspired to keep making art! Thank you. And I'll have to check out William Blake's art, I don't know whether I've seen it before...

So far I've liked all of your stuff yours is among the best I've seen on this site. The horses give the impression they will bolt off the page. All of your images give the impression of flow.

Your stuff reminds me a bit of William Blake especially in the large eyes, stylized forms and bold colors. Have you ever looked at his stuff?

You know Nell, you have such a different way of portraying things, that it is a joy to view your work. Keep it up!

Why thank you, William!

I like how you've stylised the horse, the eye is especially effective and the mane and tail make a great composition. Cool picture.

Thank you, Tom! I'm glad you like my style. I wanted the look of the horse to be dramatic.

Hi Nell,I love your water colors and style, this pic is great, like how the wind blown mane looks against the sky, also excellent horse character...

Thank you, Patrick! I wanted a somewhat eiree feel to the painting. Actually, this was all I could scan from this painting! To the right, there's a hazy, setting sun.

Hi! I had only seen one piece in your gallery so I just now looked at all of them. Very nice work. I love the colors in this one - the cool overtones in the foreground increase the feeling of early evening. I think your stylized horse works very well, too.
