Spirit

This is an oil on slate of an Arab stallion, that I did to enter a Horses in Art magazine cover contest in which I won the 3rd place!! you can read the judge comments on my painting in the new edition.

It one of my favorites because I like the expresion of the horse in between tenderness and power and the feeling of life flesh.

AWESOME

I really love that you did this on slate, how awesome! I like the definition of the horse, his expression, the colors are beautiful. I am a horse lover myself. The only thing I think you could do is maybe give him more expression in his eyes, horses have such expressive eyes.

Very nice
by: Valerie

I can't help but wonder what first and second looked like. This is very good. I love horses and you've captured his personality.I'm curious about working on slate. Do you have to treat it with anything before painting? I have used acrylics before but not oil on slate. The oil might adhere better I'm thinking. Anyway, good job.
