Horsing Around

Horse - Sketch
Copyright, Susan Borgas

The last day and a half I have done little painting. It isn't for lack of trying, just a lot happening in the background here that you guys know little about.

One thing that I was very happy with is a framing job that my husband and I did yesterday. Malcolm made the frame up and I did the mounting of the work. We also do my own framing as well and because I am so fussy we have had to learn how to achieve a professional finish to the job. As much as I would like to show you yesterdays finished framing job I don't have permission to take a photo so you are going to have to take my word for it. biggrin

As a landscape painter I do get very little opportunities to paint animals. To stretch my mind outside of my comfort zone, sketching an horse will certainly do that. Maybe I should concentrate on the family farms working dogs rather than a horse that we don't have so that I can study the animal a bit closer. wink

Hey Susan- taling about animals.

I have been working for a piece that contains a buffalo at a 3/4th perspective.

I am not getting it right and am doing a study of bull/buffalo anatomy. Do you have any links to suggest where I can study?

I can't say that I can help you with that one. :(

On second thoughts maybe it would be worth searching at the WetCanvas forum. http://www.wetcanvas.com/forums/search.php
