Reference Material Crop

"Headed To The Ring"
casein 12 x 9"

Sometimes it is not what I paint but more what I leave out.

This painting is of a rider and her horse going to the ring for a hunter-jumper class taken in the Kentucky Horse Park last May. I have a wealth of images to work with from that show, but many of the images are crowed with background noise. I am a firm believer in "Less is More" I edit a lot,crop images and make sure the design of the painting works.

I hope I have succeeded in the 12 x 9" casein on paper?

I love the atmosphere if this one - it has the intimacy of a photograph :)

Thanks, Gaina, As a hunt-jump rider when I was young..I really can relate to the whole show angst.
I have more H-J works on the easel.
