Summer Time by Julie Nash
'Summer Time' by Julie Nash - Acrylic -
I painted this mare and foal to test myself. Could I show the muscular shine of the mare and the fuzzy baby coat of the foal? How would I do the close cropped sunny meadow of buttercups and daisies and the dark cool shade trees? I think it’s important to challenge oneself. Attempting subjects where you feel on the edge of your abilities is stimulating and you discover a great deal that improves your work. If you pull off a good result it’s a huge bonus and it marks a waypoint in your artistic development too.
