The Morning Fog Series
Inspired by a foggy morning while doing chores, the Morning Fog Series came into existence. Open for viewer interpretation, the sketches of these horses are raw and natural in their purest form on the paper. I love the sketches and so many people only see the finished product, not the process. The watercolor washes are purposefully created with the split harmony of cadmium orange, red-violet and blue-green and left loose and almost abstract. I feel this allows more interpretation by the viewer as to the environment in which these horses live. Morning Fog II and II are from my own reference photos, while Morning Fog III is from a photo used with permission by Remco van der Kruis.
