For day 26 I decided to use another fabulous photo of Lorenzos grey horses taken by Jane but this time I didn’t want it to look exactly like the photo. I wanted to stylise the horse and make it my own. The photo itself is very ethereal and as I am a huge Pre-Raphaelite fan i looked to Burne-Jones for a little inspiration. I am always drawn to his watercolour studies and the way he uses those rich, and sometimes subtle, blues and warm earthy colours.

Limiting my pallette, I feel, works well for this piece. i kept the painting quite loose and i let the drips go wherever they wanted to go. I love this way of working and working ‘with’ the paint rather than going against it. Working with it can lead to some unusual and unique paintings.

Low resolution images are used for each painting day, this is to help to prevent unauthorised usage and downloading,  hence the colours may vary slightly from that of the original.
 A higher resolution image is available to view if you may be interested in purchase.
