Sunset Pasture

Oil on linen on panel, 6 x 8 inches --

This is a view from the backyard of our friends whom we are staying in Bishop, CA. Their neighbors have horses. The pasture is actually on the other side of the wooden fence, but I eliminated the fence for this composition. I realized that the horses are positioned lower than I wanted. So I made them as subtle as possible. Painting horses from life is not easy. So, I photographed the horses, then put the camera by the easel so that I can look at the photos for reference.
