Oil on linen
I just loved the high energy this pair had, they were the first of the 20+ horses harnessed to the wool bales wagon at Barellan NSW. I chose this specific composition because I just loved the shadows cast by the chains on the forelegs, thus the need to include the back end of the other horse, and I just couldn't crop out both drivers. I love the simplicity of the linen it goes well with the old adage that less is more.
Below you will find some progress shots. I remember being fascinated by the process that artists go through. This will give a brief idea.
