“River Crossing II” oil on panel, unframed.
My third small painting from my trip to the Salt River Arizona to visit the wild horse herd that lives along the riverbank.
I am starting to find my way with how I want to handle the foliage, water and the equine figure. My next paintings, which will be bigger in size, I want to work the riverbank background a little more abstractly. You can start to see some of the fun brushwork and solvent reduction marks in this piece evolving in this painting. This is a little more ‘me’ than literal background leaves, branches etc.
The water is an interesting element with a grey horse – all the reflected light and colours that bounce back onto the figure.
