Morning Rendezvous No.2

Oil on linen on panel, 6" x 6" -- Click here to bid

This painting of a white horse is a part of Daily Paintworks Challenge for this week hosted by Carol Marine. I experimented with compositions quite bit, and settled with this one. I noticed a white little flower near the bottom of the reference photo provided by Carol. So I repeated it around the horse. I simplified composition by eliminating the rear legs and tail, shifting the position of its body. I also emphasized orange and red spots here and there to compliment the blues and greens. I hope these tricks suggest the narrative even though the whole landscape is not shown.
