Cowboy And Appaloosa
Painting - Watercolor Painting
Produced in remembrance of the old west and nostalgia for the bygone days of cowboys and the life they lived. This portrait is of a seasoned cowboy saddled up on his appaloosa horse, accompanied by his two cattle dogs. He is ready to hit the trail. The original is16"x20" painted on 140# archival Arches cold press watercolor paper. Because there was so much detail in this painting, I had to use a magnifying glass for parts of it. The original currently hangs in the Law Offices of the Mayo Luther Clinic in Eau Claire, Wisconsin.
I use the 'limited palette' of the three primary colors to produce all the shades and hues you see in my paintings. Red, yellow and blue transparent watercolor in both warm and cool shades can be mixed to obtain any color in the spectrum. I find I have more control over the final results. My artwork covers a wide range of subjects from whimsically humorous to serious and refined. However, my passion is doing portraiture of animals and people. I love to capture the emotion of the moment.
I hope you enjoy my work and I welcome any comments. Thanks for stopping by and visiting my gallery of high quality giclee prints and greeting cards. You may also choose to have the prints framed or printed on ready to hang framed canvas. Please feel free to contact me via FAAemail with any questions.
