The Splash of Summer Series

With cadmium orange skies and lush blue-green fields, splashes of blue-violet amid the other colors, these pieces exude the energy and good vibes of a beautiful summer day. Inspiration is all around me, as horses are an integral part of my life and I was inspired to try to capture some of the fun energy horses playing during turnout can have. Keeping the sketches of the horses in a simple and more basic sketch the viewer has the ability to interpret each horse as they see it in their mind’s eye. With energy and athleticism, each horse moves across the field to take us to sunny memories or wishes of what may be. All sketches are from my own reference photos.
