WOYWW July 24th

Horsing Around in the Studio this WOYWW!

A new use for my Ranger Inks, I'm using them like paint with a stipling brush/sponge.


My Desk WOYWW July 24th, 2012





Nearly Finished 15 X 22

Why was I inspired to create horses this week?  My DS has taken up Horseback Riding!!  He's doing great his first week and I'm spending lots of time on the ranch with beautiful horses everywhere.




A couple of creations to share from yesterday

Ravens Dance 9 X 12 Mixed Media 




Thanks for stopping by can't wait to see what's on your desk this week!

Your horse picture is so beautiful. I love the way it flows. Your son is braver than me, I'm scared of horses, give me cows any day. Love the raven dance.
Have a great week.

Elizabeth said...

Love the beauty of horses but steer clear of them as they scare me - they're intelligent animals but too easily spooked for my comfort. Saying that, I love your paintings and impressed with the effect you have achieved with Ranger inks. Happy WOYWW, Elizabeth x #24

Princess Judy Palmer said...

Lovely horse renderings. That's a great idea to use the Ranger inks to stipple with it. The colors are great and really add to it. Good luck to your son on the horseback riding. I've done a spot of it myself and it is enjoyable.

Ooh, I love Windy - it fells very intimate with the tip of snout off the canvas. Clever to use maps for the people in Raven's Dance. I'm very much in love with that one!

As usual, I'm bringing up the WOYWW rear. :) Thanks for your visit!

Cheers,
