About Paula Collewijn - The Art of Horses


~ The Art of Horses ~
Commissions & Free Expression
By Paula Collewijn


'We hold our breath, before us the morning mist behind us the forest and in the distance the stables...
At the horizon the first morning glow, a shudder passes through us and I feel his explosive power...
At such a moment I feel one with nature and my horse, my noble friend...
For me the symbol of Freedom and Grace.

Horses are my greatest inspiration because of their beauty, strength, dynamic and sensitivity. I paint with passion the movement and emotion of these noble creatures.
My work is 'free expression' done in a realistic / expressive style by individual assignment. The ' free expression ' takes definition on the canvas whereby the horse become ' alive ' .This ' alive ' on the canvas is realized through a feeling brought about from a created image. For me The Horse takes the main focus and the ' inspiration ' coming from the horse makes the canvas complete; a mix of the Horse’s soul and my emotions.

My name is Paula Collewijn, Equine Artist, born in 1978, year of The Horse. My specialism is painting and drawing of Horses; Horse Portraits and Free Expression.
Mostly without armour, the influence of the human being.

I do also draw and paint Dog Portraits , Cat Portraits and Wildlife.

The main emphasis of my collection of Free Expression Artwork is to bring the Best of every Horse on canvas., the soul and body together, with a strong expression.
The Horse to me; flowing manes, a mythical gracious body and mesmerizing eyes.
I use a baroque - style by which the horse appears to come forward in a mural - like way.
This type of work fits in a modern as well as classical interior.
I am inspired by the work of the old masters, they do fascinate me; Michelangelo, Rembrandt and Géricault.

The title which I give to describe my work is ~The Art of Horses~, Souls of Art ; in other words The Horse is Art for me., with a profound Soul. It is so that I give each work its own title and poem which is inspired by the character of the horse and my emotions during the design of the painting.

A ' Symphony ' of movement, feeling and beauty ' Art is an expression of the Heart and an image of the Soul ' ; Horse power and Horse emotions can be felt on the canvas.

Paintings by assignment I make in a 17th Century painting technique. The technique gives an authentic characteristic to the work, a portrait with history. The final result is derived by building various layer upon layer of paint which in the end becomes a ' live ' realistic portrait on canvas. Painted so realistically that each muscle appears to be touchable.
The eyes are the mirror of the soul and here I apply intense expression.

For an assignment I use various techniques such as graphite, acrylic and oil paint.
It is also possible to make an assignment in my free expression style.
For assignments I will gladly come to take pictures of your horse and observe te horse closely. Sending a serial of photo's in various positions is also possible.

My work is shown at various horse related exhibitions such as Jumping Amsterdam,
Horse Event, Iberian Horse Days as well as Championships and Campeonatos in various galleries and countries.

“A Manuscript of The Horse”, otherwise a by the hand made script, explained by imagination. The Power and Emotions of The Horse, touchable and forever on canvas.

Come my noble friend, time to canter away ... Hey morning sun, here we come !'
