Hill Horses - backlit horses western landscape

Hill Horses                                oil                        9" x 11"
I have never been a horse owner, but they always turn my head because of the wonderful rounded shapes and light that glints off their backs. This is a kind of unusual composition and I liked it in part, for that reason. I was in boat on the banks of the river, looking up at them. With the light coming through the trees, it created nice light and back-lit shapes.

Pin It
