    This is a very ‘soft’ painting and the colours you chose are delightful.
    The only ‘problem’ I have with it is the ‘cheek’…it somehow looks a little ‘pasted’ on as if it were added later ot worked over but it’s a lovely piece of art and clearly you have a connection with this animal.

    I see a lot of horses drawn, painted and I think it’s great. I love the blue hue you used. It’s almost like, dream like? or fantastic? Maybe if there weren’t so many highlights because it gives a shiny aspect to the horse, unless you wanted it that way. Great sense of character.

    very well done, muscle tone, coat, eye, pleasing to the eye.

    Beautiful. I like your background colors and the subject is great. I don’t know if this is a personnal friend but it looks like a lot of love was put in. It almost looks angelic. Great job.

    Interesting color…mythical. Intelligent eye. Nice work!

    Lovely, you have captured the softness of nature.

  12. John on Sun, 24th Aug 2008 2:25 pm 

    I also like this but there is something about the cheek that doesn’t seem quite right.

    Wonderful chalk rendition, the horse gives me the impression of a lovely dream, of a more romantic time.

  14. Jayne Cummins on Sun, 24th Aug 2008 7:41 pm 

    Just love it – you have really captured the gentle nature of the horse (presumably a mare).

    Hi Sabine,
    After looking at this a bit more closely, I do agree with John about the cheek of the horse. If you squint down and look at the horse, the vein running to the right of the eye is a bit dark and it is also highlighted by the white pastel on top. This dark line then almost forms a right angle with the dark shadow line under the chin. If these dark areas could be blended more and softer in appearance, they would not form that right angle shape and distract from the lovely work you did on the rest of the horse.

    Nice work!

    Ingrid ;-)

    Hi Sabine,
    Very nice smudging. Good work.

    I agree about the horse’s cheek.
    But your work is really impressing! Nice blending technique…
    Great job!

    Very soft and mystical. Lovely use of both white and black. Lovely thank you

    This is my second time to comment. I have had a look at you web site and your art work is stunning. May I suggest that anyone else who has a look at this painting go and view your other work. It really is worthwhile.

    Great work my friend! Beautiful painting ..keep it up.

  21. Linda on Mon, 25th Aug 2008 6:09 pm 

    quite mystical…wonderful painting

  22. Amanda on Tue, 26th Aug 2008 6:47 am 

    Gills description ` mystical ` is very fitting. You have some lovely work on your website.

    Accurate representation of a horse but it looks a little too glossy. Like if it was made of glass…But the technique is superb.

    I can see that you have a great love of horses. Your use of light and dark is just beautiful. I love the pose you have chosen but the cheek bone angle is a little off. I know that horses are very hard to paint and you have done a superb job of capturing it’s essense. Thank you for sharing.
