The Wiz... work in progress

The Wiz - Friesian Stallion

Recently I was invited to attend the Shoalhaven Dressage Championship show with a display of my artwork... riders will be coming from all over the state for this event.

As some thing different from just a display of my artwork .. Ive decided to do a live demonstration of how I work ... I thought it might create a little more interest if people could observe me working  and could ask questions...

Last year at this event my husband took a number of photos for me of a beautiful Friesian stallion called Wizard.. it is one of his photos I will be using for my demonstration.. 

Ive worked the drawing up to the stage shown and will finish off his bridle, mane and shoulder over the dressage weekend.

The Wiz will be 20" x 25" when finished and is being drawn in pastel... 

expressions of interest are being taken prior to the work being finished... if you would like to put a hold on this piece please drop me an email: catherin@animalarthouse.com

First Gymkhana


First Gymkhana

First Gymkhana is finally finished.. I didn't realise how long all those roan coloured hairs would take on the horses shoulder and chest.. ☺

Getting the right colour mix for the shadow of the rein and neck where interesting ... experimenting with a mix of colours till I finally found the shade I was happy with.

All that's left is to seal the painting once Ive let it dry out completely for a few days.. I find its much better to leave it a few days especially with the humid weather we've been having.

First Gymkhana is 24" x 30" painted on a gallery wrapped canvas

Leg On - watercolour

Leg On

Next month I will be attending the local Dressage Championships as both an exhibitor and a sponsor.... one of the ideas that had been put forward to me previously was to create a piece that didn't depict the entire horse or even the rider as such.. but a part of the rider that would be familiar to both riders and none riders a like.

With this in mind I looked at various aspects the bridle, top and and cane and finally settled on the top boot... which is part of the clothing familiar to every one in the horse world.

Leg On is created using my favourite watercolour Charcoal Grey on white arches 300gsm hot pressed (smooth paper)

10" x 13"
$950.00 framed - $750.00 (unframed)

expressions of interest are being taken prior to the show on the 13th and 14th November.

untitled... new acrylic painting stage 1

Untitled - stage 1

I started on my latest acrylic painting this morning.. as yet the piece is untitled... guessing a name will come to me as I progress through this one.

Im looking forward to the challenge of painting the both the little girls face and the roan coloured appy in acrylics... the size of this a painting is quite large for me 24" x 30" but a good size to hang on the wall.

Stage 1... I painted the background using a mix of blue and white not minding that in places the white hasnt quite mixed with the blue giving a speckled effect which I hope will create a little interest in the background.

next I drew in the horse and rider... blocked in the whites on the helmet, joddies and the direction the white hair will be going in on the horses head.

The virtual party is a fun monthly challenge .. artists are given a reference photo and 24hours to complete their interpretation on it.   Its amazing to see the different interpretations on the same photo.

Black pastel is one of my favourite colours to work on as it allows the subject to blend into the background or jump out of the paper depending upon the colours used.

After a bit of encouragement my neice has  launched a redbubble shop with some of her equine and non-equine  photography...

Fantazia


Fantazia

Fantazia was the original drawing and painting for my watercolour Enchanted.  I decided that it was too large to achieve the look I wanted in watercolour.  Having made that decision I didnt want to through the original away and had a mad idea that I could rework the original drawing/painting as a mixed media work.

So meet Fantazia 17" x 23" mixed medium  I wanted it to be a more fantasy style drawing hence the blues in the horse is drawn in.   Expressions of interest are being taken prior to this piece being taken to an exhibition.
