Horse and Crow


This is sort of a flat cobbling together of elements. Definitely not concentrated or sure of where it was going from the start, except for the crow and sunset. Horse was totally and suddenly added. Not sure if it will get finished. In which case if it does it will be changed quite a bit. Way too coarse. No patient work in it. Not enough objects painted from real life. Not one I regard as typical of my work. It's oil on matte board, and just happens to be one I have on file. Overall impression of the colours I like though.

The more I look at it the more I like it. At first, I did not like the horse, and, quite frankly, wondered why you chose to include it. But the work has grown on me. Maybe the centrality of the bird, maybe the path, maybe the colors; I don't know. The black border enhances the picture.

I love this, particularly the black outlining throughout. Hope you post more pics. So....is this just sitting in a closet? Sad....
