Watercolor painting horse

I am working with color. This is Maggie and I find that I paint her more than any of my other horses. Maggie is a Thoroughbred and her lines are so silently graceful. Her movements are quiet and I watch and admire the fluid grace from her head through her tail. It is impossible to capture. But, I continue to try.

Mississippi Cow - Animal Landscape Oil Painting

This scene is in Paynes, Mississippi with a slight population. I have no doubt that there are more cows than folks living there.

Landscape Oil Painting - Mississippi Delta

This is just up the road (as they say) from my place. It is a field next to my uncle's house and is indeed part of his farm. It is just off the paved highway and there is actually a gravel road that runs alongside the treeline.

Landscpe Oil Painting

Its hard to reproduce here the rich deep colors created by oil paint. This is a typical scene where the hills meet the delta in my hometown.

Dog Oil Painting

This is a commission piece and will be shipped out of state. I really enjoy painting the small oil pieces. I do, however, find it difficult to go from watercolor to oils and then back again.
