Grazing 

18 x 27 inches, Oil on Canvas

This painting was a fun journey.  It started much different than it ended up. That is what I usually refer to as the Spirit of the Paint.   Even the colors were changed as it evolved.  

In the beginning I had a charcoal drawing on the canvas.  Then it went to a flat painted background and horses. Then it went to full knife, heavy layering of oils on the canvas surface and lots of knife action.
