I love doing horses from any vantage point, even when they decide to run away from me. There were actually about 8 horses in the pasture and I just picked out the most interested 'hind quarters'. I could have named it, "Butt, was it something I said?" Well, they weren't really running away… I could have also titled this, "Dinner's ready" . The original is acrylic on canvas. I was in my 'purple period' and it was done as a demonstration for my students of using a limited palette. I used mainly diox purple and hooker's green. After I painted it, I happened to see a notice about the Northern Lights and realized I could use that in the title.
PLEASE NOTE: the colors appear more vivid on my ipad than they do in real life so bear that in mind. But the colours are true, just seem a little more vibrant than in the original.
