Alpine Foal

Medium: Watercolor/Gouache, Image Size: 12”h x 16”w, 2001.

I don’t often paint mother and foal paintings because I only see them occasionally, but I saw this pair on a hill close to my home on Black Mountain. I painted the Eddie Mountains, which are west of Mt. Shasta, in the background because they are a beautiful mountain range. I thought it made a fitting combination of beautiful horses and landscape.

Original is sold.

I spotted this mother and foal wandering the grassy slopes south of Black Mountain in Siskiyou County, California. Though it was a cloudy day, and the lighting was drab, the horses had so much strong contrast because of their black and white shades.
