'Southern Belle' new oil painting



Pin It
I finished this painting in december for an artist friend in the UK, the talented Amanda Drage. You should check out her blog if you haven't done so already, her paintings of horses and birds are very inspirational.
It was fun painting those glowing eyes and all the colors in the white fur. I tried to keep the brushwork loose and free flowing, hopefully I succeeded.

"Southern belle", oil on linen, 30x40cm (12x16) n/a
