Painting Class/Equine Project

June Kakowski, after Lucy Kemp-Welch

In my advanced painting class we have been working on painting horses.  We have gone in depth on the anatomy ... and still have some more work in that area!  Quite a few horse paintings are close to completion and I will be posting them here.  I did recommend, for those who had never painted a horse before, to do a copy of a good painting.  This is June Kakowski's painting after a painting by Lucy Kemp-Welch ... my favorite equine artist. June did a great job exploring the planes and anatomy of the head.  Copying with a purpose, to study an aspect of the artist's work, can be a constructive project. Thanks, June.
