Buckskin Stallion at a Gallop

10 x 14 watercolor with pastel and charcoal on paper. This piece was done with lots of pastel! I tried to keep it loose and free flowing to hopefully create a lot of energy and motion. My horses are always in motion - trotting, galloping, racing, jumping etc. Hope you like them.

Thank you Julie. I am trying very hard to show movement in my equine abstracts.

You definitely captured a lot of movement and energy and I love the colors, too!

Thanks Theresa! I am glad you like these colors - I wasn't sure at first, but I like the way it turned out - thankfully.
