This is an original oil horse painting by artist Christopher Clark. Being with horses is such a calming and humbling experience. They're very noble creatures, smart, and very curious. This handsome grey fellow kept following me around after I pat him nicely around his head and neck, he really loved the attention. He never realized he'd end up immortalized on canvas like this, I hope I did him proudly.
On this painting, I did something interesting with the painting technique: I made each brushtroke go only horizontally. There are a few whispy brushstrokes for the tail, but otherwise every stroke only goes side-to-side. It's a challenge, but it's fun and always comes out with a lovely effect.
This painting was done with oil paint on stretched canvas. The sides are painted black, the painting is ready to hang as-is.
