Teddie goes home!

Teddie “Acrylic on Canvas” Private Commission
Teddie has been with me in my studio for many months now, watching me from the easel, each day I added a little more detail….but not too much.  A contemporary acrylic of this gorgeous horse was my mission and from the very early design sketches, to the last brushstroke, I can say that I have enjoyed every minute of this piece.  The illusion of black, was created by rich mixtures of  browns, blues and reds.  The “black” peeks through the white occasionally giving the impression of the shadows.
Teddie has left the building….well, that is my studio, but I know he is now where he belongs!  I do miss those eyes peeking at me across the studio though!
